How much does afterschool daycare cost?

Hi guys, I'm just trying to find out what afterschool (say, 3pm -7pm) daycare costs for school-aged children. Sitter, center, whatever.

I am seriously thinking of taking an entrepreneurial leap of faith, and starting an afterschool care/tutoring business in my home. I'll call local centers to check their rates, but I thought you guys would be faster with answers...like, tonight!

Please share! Thanks!!!

You want to know how much parents pay to send their kids to an after school program? At my school, they pay $9 an hour per child to attend.

Hope this answers your question.

I think it's $3 for every fifteen minutes at my school.

The YMCA does after school care at my school for 35 per week/per kid. I think it would be more than that for a daycare center.

My son's school charges $400 for the entire school year (3-5:30 p.m.) However, there is not afterschool care the last week of school. The cheapest daycare center that I could find that would pick him up after school charged $75 per week (3-6:30).

At our school extended day program (right on campus) we pay $40 per week for DD. Our church has an after school program. Including pick up at the schools the cost per child is $65 per week. A lot depends upon your area too. We are in Daytona Beach.

$4.50/hour

The sibling is $3.00/hour.

Just wanted to mention that you really need to be careful about checking into regulations, both twon/city and state. You don't want to do this and then find out that your local officials don't allow it or that you didn't jump through the right hoops.

For instance, in our state, if you call anything a "camp" you automatically need a nurse on duty at all times, even for a one hour program. (I know you're not doing a camp, but a "cutesy" name would shut you down for not having a nurse.)

I thought I paid a lot for my sitter... $2.50 an hour per child. Boy, I guess I'm lucky!!! So right now I have 2 DD's that go to the sitter everyday so I'm paying $5.00 an hour. I can't imagine paying $9.00.

YMCA is the main option for after school care near me. These are the 2008-2009 MONTHLY rates for one child (no discount for siblings)

5 days a week $486.00
4 days $410.00
3 days $312.00
2 days $210.00

This includes transportation to the center from release time until 6:00 pm.

Snow days and no school days are about $50/daily/per child
