The average cost of daycare I have found to be about $4.00 an hour. That may not seem like a lot, but actually it adds up. I have found some that charge 2 and some that charge more. Some will charge you an extra amount if you have more than one child or if they have to supply the snacks, etc. If you qualify for daycare assistance, check with the courthouse in your area. Sometimes they have lists of certified daycares in the county, with prices included.
