“Daycares are so expensive!” that is the common complaint that most parents are having. But parents really do not realize the cost of running a family home or center facility. As a owner, each dollar that I get goes towards some kind of bill. Take for instant, if a parent gives me $115.00 a week they really on actually paying me $2.55 per hour. ($115 divided by 45 hours a week (kid is at daycare). So actually we receive very little. In fact daycares are one of the lowest paying jobs and highly stressful. I always tell my parents, that they need to think of it as contributing to your child’s education. And that should be one of the top priorities.
At Little Red School house Preschool and Tiny Treasures Learning Center is where you can get a great curriculum and a structure schedule. Now there are places you can pay for less and you get exactly what you pay for, less. But when choosing a daycare of course you must look at your budget and see what you can afford and there are some home daycares that can provide what your budget can handle plus give you the curriculum that you acquire. But I always feel that education should be number one and cost second. I always say education is the key to success. And at what price is your child worth?
