Ope. No that's for two.
Yeah but at most that’s, what 3 hours a day when they’ve got to staff it from 6,7 am to 3? I still don’t get how there’s margins on infants.
There isn't. Is a brrak-even business.
If you want to move to Ankeny, I have a 4 bed, 4 bath I'd sell you. Good neighborhood/neighbors too.
We were able to drastically cut daycare costs by going in home. $1.50-1.75/hour per kid.
I'm guessing that it being the persons grandkids had no influence on the price.
What’s a crack house sell for these days?
For those that think daycare goes away when your kids start school - think again.
If both spouses work full time, you still need care in the summer when they aren't in school, unless you are fortunate enough to have a relative watch them or you have an educator in the family. Throw in you are probably going to have some before and after school care unless you can make your schedules work to avoid this.
And don't forget summer camps - those aren't cheap either.
Yeah, our 10 year old still does the summer care, but it's less than half what the 2 year old cost is. And it's only for 3 months. We've had before/after school care to this point, too, but that's only ~$300/mo - wayyyy cheaper than the $1,000 daycare bill. Next year (5th grade) she'll start bussing, maybe I'll get a new car (I won't, but more college can get prepaid).
As far as daycare profits, most of the employees don't make much. You have the teens making $8-10/hr, but I don't think even the full-timers typically make much. When my wife was laid-off last year she considered trying childcare as she'd enjoy that more than insurance, but the pay she was seeing was like $15-16/he. I think they do ok profit-wise.
Where the hell do you think you're moving to?
This is downright depressing to think about but knowing our children are in good hands is what makes it all a "little" bit more ok. It looks like I'm going to get back to work now, Ive got rising property taxes and child care to pay for!
Thank god my wifes best friend is a teacher and about to start having children of her own as well. The thought of the summer care cost just about made me cry as well.
Add a Benjamin.
ours does meals too so I suppose I save a tiny bit on food??? Mostly the time it saves me is really nice. They do a good job though and really care for the children.
Daycare is whoa, with 2, our monthly pretty much equals our mortgage. With that said, the annual day care bill is not too far off from a year of tuition at a state public university. With that in mind I am less nervous about college costs.
So here's the new question. Do we take jobs with lesser salaries/new industry to move to Des Moines or do we wait until we find something comparable and stay put until that time?
What is more important?
escaping the general internal unhappiness of my life that will follow me wherever i go, regardless of location.
I wouldn’t move then.
Probably want to address that before making any other decisions. What is causing it and what you think may help.
Salaries/Wages should be like a good CD ... All Rise
DSM is a rat race. How fast are you?
