How Much Does Daycare Cost?

Although many women would like to stay home with their kids, in today’s economy that is not always a possibility.  Two-income households are becoming more common than one-income households.  While there are many options from which to choose (such as in home day-care, a nanny, and before and after-school programs), a day care is the most common solution to the problem of child care in two-income households.

    When I was in Florida I had to pay a boat load of money for my child. He was 3 years old and my weekly bill was easily $200!

    And that is how it is supposed to be. I awayls feel uncomfortable when I visit a home that is too clean. Makes me feel like I’m in a museum rather than a place where people live.As awayls I’m impressed by the clarity of your photos.
