Before and afterschool care, do the daycare costs ever end?
My daughter will be starting kindergarten in less than one month. This means two things. One- No more daycare!!!!! She will be attending a parochial school, but the cost of tuition per month is way less then a month of daycare. And she gets to go there 5 days a week! She was only going to daycare 2-3 days a week.
But wait, hold off on the celebrating. What I didn't say is that the school day starts at 8pm and ends at 3pm. Guess what? on days I work, she will need some kind of child care before school. Both my husband and I have to start work before 8am. So we get to pay extra money for before school care. I am really, really, really trying to keep her out of afterschool care. It is double the price of before school care. I have a whole schedule of who will be picking up my daughter from school. As long as the schedule is followed, it should not be a problem. I will cry if I have to sign her up for both. I am so tired of paying for daycare. If I would have put all of the money for the six years of daycare I paid for, I could have paid off a brand new luxury car or 2 years at a state college.
And I just posted yesterday that it was ok to take your children to daycare.......what a crazy person I am.
