DCM's work pays for childcare/preschool/daycare/what have you, so I don't think cost is a huge factor for them.

I'm just curious since mom is so complimentary and verbally thankful (who knows her real feelings though?) why the change. Unless she just really believes a brick and mortar school is the next step.

On a side note, one of our local elementary schools offers aftercare from 3pm - 6:00pm for $9 per day. It seems very low to me. Before school and after school is $15 per day. So essentially your child can be away from home from 6:30am - 6:00pm for $15 per day
In the end though that still comes out to $330 dollars monthly at $15 dollars a day. Seems pretty high for school age still but sad if parents feel the need to have them gone that long. I do have children in my care though open to close, so I do know it happens.
Each day is a fresh start
Never look back on regrets
Live life to the fullest
We only get one shot at this!!
