Default What Are The Highest Paying Daycare Areas Around You?

I just saw on another post that somes ones sister gets $280 a wk per child! . For some reason that blows my mind. Maybe cause I'm doing the math in my head and I'm seeing a beach vacation at the same time

So just out of curiosity I wondering what the higher paying areas are? Here in lower Ny I am charging $160 a week.

Oh heck and the cheapest.... I see craigslist adds for for $60-$100 a week.

Play along.... I can't sleep

I would think though that areas that can charge that much more also have a higher COL, so your beach vacation might really be high taxes or hefty mortgage payments.

I'm in small college town Iowa. $125-150 is the norm. Some charge $5 an hour and others charge $225 a child and stay full. The low end around here isn't so much about cost it's more that they charge hourly with no minimum, don't charge for child absences or for any paid days off or holidays.

Small, rural town. One Group center is approx. $150.00 to $190.00 a week depending on age of kids. Average is $110-$125 week.

I charge between 50-60/day and that's about average. I include all meals, but another provider about 2miles from me includes no meals and charges 300/week. She has a crazy long waiting list. She enrolls families almost as soon as they find out they are pregnant!
Another daycare around here charges 450/week. They are organic and cloth diaper and include everything. They currently have a 6 month waiting list.
It's crazy!!

$120 a week and that's on the high end for a home-based! The centers around here are 120-150 and the home daycares are 80-120.
That includes preschool curriculum, meals and all field trips (we do at least one a week). Parents provide diapers and wipes.

On average here it is $30 per day. I charge $35 infants, $30 pre school. I know the centers are close to $200 a week at least for pre-school age ft care. There is a pre-school that just opened and is $150 a WEEK! they are full! So I'm hoping my price can go up soon too

Center charges $150 for 3+ and $170 for 2's.

I charge $145 for 7am-5pm (most arrive at 8, you must specify that you need 7) ages 2-5.

I live in Minneapolis and the price for daycare depends on if it is a center or home daycare. A center can run anywhere from $250.00 per child to $275.00 a week and home daycare varies from $120.00 a week to $200.00 a week. I charge $150.00 a week and I provide breakfast,lunch & snacks. I have been told from some of my daycare parents that I am really reasonable and about in the middle of what other people are charging in Minneapolis.

In lower NY as well.. I was told by the friendly folks helping me get set up that the average for my area is 140 per week. I'm thinking about charging 150, as its easier math. Not saying that some people would have a difficult time dividing 140 by 5 but... well.. yes, I guess I am in fact saying that. :-)

Wow it really is amazing how the prices differ. I understand that cost of living plays into it a lot. But where I am it's a small town and the cost of living is very high and the majority of the community is low income. I often wonder what it would be like to move somewhere where things balance out more.. Ya know?
We bought at the peak of the housing boom and my mortgage a lone is insane...for nothing lol.
Some times I wonder if its worth it....

Lol ... I hear you. I used to charge $135 way back when and it was so difficult. Parents never planned ahead to bring the exact amount and always demanded change. It was difficult . Hey ,,,maybe were neighbors

I forgot to mention actual centers in Las Vegas...
they range from $600 to over $1000 a month!!

I used to work at the one that charges around $1000 a month. I was required to have a bachelors degree (which i do), I was paid less than $2 more than minimum wage, the center had around 250 kids and it was the absolute worst place ever!!!! no control over the kids...it was like a zoo and i was doing crowd control all day. Yikes!

Around here (Greater Ft. Lauderdale), I charge $150 per week ($160 till 6:00). Some charge a bit higher. I'm not sure how much centers charge but more than I do although they reduce the weekly amount as children get older, I don't.

I'm not entirely sure what the rates are around me. I believe $120-150 is average for Indy. Give or take a few....no clue about centers. I charge $100 for pt of 2-3 days a week & 120 for 4 or 5 days. I started at 120 and 150, but dropped a few bucks and got clients.

I would think in my areas HDC are NOT paid high rates at all. Nannies would have a better chance of making $$$$. Funny thing is when I needed childcare for my son who is now 12 (I worked PT out of the home 3 days/week) I was paying almost the same amount that I see a lot of parents wanting to pay now & that was 11 1/2 yrs ago & it's the same rate - blows my mind!!!! That being said I think average for my area is anywhere from $100-140/week - the center in my town charges $165/week for infants & $130/week for preschool age BUT from what I see on CL & on a local daycare board I am on most providers in my area are willing to take $75-100/week which is why my rates likely seem "high". I live in western central Ohio @ 30 min west of Columbus. I charge between $110-130/week depending on the age of the child.

I live 15 minutes outside of Washington DC, and I charge $250/ week, going to $280 in Jan.

Centers here range from $350-$500/week, and I don't know any that offer a part time rate.

That being said, we can't buy a house here for less than $500K.

I'm making really good money, and am able to have a great lifestyle, but by no means do we have a disposable income, or are we taking multiple vacations a year. My income matching the cost of living in the area.

I live in a very small town (less than 300) in missouri and I charge $20 a day. I don't get paid holidays, they don't pay for days they aren't here. I'm the highest in my area (everyone else is $17 a day) my first kiddos I started watching gave me a raise a few months ago so I upped my fee at that point. I get phone calls every other week so I must be doing something right and our cost of living is pretty low. We just bought our 3 story house for 60k. But I'm also 25 min from the closet town

I'm in CT. We have a high cost of living. The highest in the area is $250/week and the lowest is $165 for licensed care. I've seen craigslist ads for $125 nonlicensed, which is illegal here. You have to have a license even if you watch one part time child in your home.
When I was fulltime I charged $225 for infant. $200 2-4 and $175 for 5+

I have no idea how much anyone near me charges... I just raised my rates a bit and I am afraid maybe they are too high - I just crossed over the $200/wk mark and while all my current families didn't complain (their rates went up $10/wk) I feel maybe I went too high. I am in central NJ - my prop taxes alone are over 10k a year - so pretty high COL I think.

I live in a big city in Minnesota and charge $275/week (or $55/day) for kids older than 12 months and $300/week (or $60/day) for an infant younger than 12 months. However, all of the families I have lined up either come 3 days (M-W) or 2 days (Th-F).

Almost all of the families have commented that one of the things that appealed most to them were my prices. As in--they consider my rates to be fairly low. However, most of the families are transitioning from large, expensive centers to my care or leaving nannies to come here. In comparison, my rates are much lower. I also live right on the edge of a well-to-do side of town with lots of stay-at-home parents and part-time working parents who are able to invest a lot (time, attention, money) in their children's care and education.

I don't have full enrollment--by choice--so that is possibly also a draw. I can have 10 kids, but right now I only have 4 on some days and 5 on other days. In the spring, I plan to add another child or two so I have 5 kids on some days and 6 kids on others.

We are not getting rich, but if things go as planned, we will be able to be comfortable. Our area is an expensive place to live.

I am in the Deep South and the rates average $75-$130 a week per child.

* There are more kids receiving "free" (tax payer funded) childcare than there are private pay. Many centers are closing down and the school system is absorbing the burden (k-3, k-4).

Yes mine too- but like someone said cost of living is a huge part. I lost a ton of kids to family - mostly grandmas- to save $.

I live in a Northwestern suburb of Chicago and charge $250/week for full time infants and $225/week for 18 months and up. I'm right around the average of centers and home daycares. I have a waiting list and only charge $5 more per day than when I first started 8 years ago...

Default Wow!

I live in a rural area of Missouri. Wages are pretty low here and I live in a low income town. I charge $95/week for under age 2. $85/week for everyone else. I am open 7am-5:30 pm and most parents will leave them here the WHOLE time. My mistake for not restricting that a little more but it seems that is how long it takes them to commute to and from work I guess.

In my area near Pittsburgh PA the rates vary a bit-- the math works out to about $32-54/day, and they give discounts for multiple kids and if full time. Home daycare can be anywhere from very cheap (unlicensed), but.normally about $25-40/ day. Infants are on the higher end of course since they require a 4:1 ratio of caretakers.

In my area, prices range from $50 per week () to $175 per week. I charge hourly, and it comes out to around $125 per week. I am higher than MOST providers in my area, but there are a few that are charging around $175. The ones that are charging $50, $60, $70 just scare me (quality of care/food). I WISH I could charge more, but probably 95% of my calls never set up an interview once they hear my rate (which is $15 per week more than the "average" in our area per the last state survey).

I charge $45/day for FT kids, $50/day for PT kids or drop-ins. I live in Northern CA near San Francisco. Nannies charge $20-25/hr and centers charge $60+ a day. There's one large daycare that does preschool as well and she charges $63/day!

I am in Onatrio (Whitby)
And charge $40/day
I never thought of charging P/T kids more but it only makes sense.

We should get in touch with all providers in our area and universally increase the prices especially those of us working for so little. COL is way up and daycare costs remains the same year after year. How can some making $20/ day afford to even feed and offer supplies gesh. Also our standards have increased, " I only want my kiddo to have organic, CD, natural toys" we'll I just paid $12 for 3L of milk so it only makes sense to increase due to COL

125-175 is pretty standard for my area for licensed homes for all ages, but as I make the transition to 100% organic, I will be raising rates. There is a 100% organic, all cloth, all natural toys, etc, licensed home 20 minutes from me that charges $350/week no matter how many days you need.

Unlicensed I have seen advertising recently for $75/week ft any shift, up to licensed rates (which is NOT a problem if they are legally unlicensed)

Centers are $250+ now since there is some major competition going on at the moment.

I charge $140 a week. (I used to charge $130, but raised them for new families) I have seen fcc's advertise anywhere form $125 to $200 a week and have seen illegally unlicensed people charge $75 a week. Centers are a lot higher!

My school's Child Development Center (used to accept 6 weeks to 5 years, but now only preschool for 3-5 year olds) charges up to $1,000/month per child for 5 days a week. It may be less if the parents are full time students or if they qualify for child care assistance.

I'm about 30 minutes from Boston and my fee is $200 per week, inclusive. My fee is average in this area for home care. Rates closer to Boston are much higher.
