It depends on where you live. The $15 a day the previous answer mentioned wouldn’t get you a half day where I am. The going rate for preschoolers in homes or centers ranges from $50 to $60 a day around here. You should contact the programs you are interested in.

It depends on the age of the child to begin with.


in center: up to $9.00/hour – $1440/month – 8 hour days

in home: up to $7.00/hour – $1120/month – 8 hour days

age 3-5

in center: up to $5.00/hour – $800/month – 8 hour days

in home: up to $4.00/hour – $640/month – 8 hour days

The price difference is due to ratios. Infant ratio is 3 infants to 1 adult in center, and 4 infants to 1 adult in home.

Pre-k ratio is 12 kids to 1 adult.

I hope this helps
