I pay $200/ week for part time(5 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week) daycare.
he's 2.5

I work full time, but I drop him off before I go to work and BD gets out a few hours before me and picks him up.

I"m not a single mom, but my LO goes to daycare now twice a week for 7 -8 hours at a time while I have class. I pay a flat rate of 25 dollars a day so 50 a week. She's 2...I also live in rural Minnesota so the cost of living is cheap...

I'm no longer single, but my BF is currently unemployed--



I work FT and pay 181/week. So expensive (not the most expensive, though. I used to live in a place that wanted $350/week for half f**king days).

I work from home (well kind of my youngest is with me but we aren't always at my home) as an assistive aide to disabled adults. I go to school part time.
My kids are almost 14yrs, 11yrs and 16mos. I go to school when the older ones are in school, I pay $36 a day 2x a week for part days for my youngest to go to daycare while I'm in school.

Before I got married, I worked full time and paid anywhere from $1100 to $1500 a month. I eventually got a nanny and paid her $125 a week.

Daycare here is only $100 a week for full time. and that is at 10 hours a day.



There is daycare assistance that can help out a little. I am currently going to school so daycare assistance has me covered.
