Just wondering if anyone could give me any insight about weekly daycare rates in the springs area (including woodland park) When I move I'll be coming from OK which has a much lower cost of living, so I expect the prices will be more. My son will be under 3 when we get there, so I'm just trying to look at all aspects. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!!!

He'd better be by that time!! He's 15 months right now, but will be close to 3 when we get there, and we've already bought a potty chair that just sits in the bathroom so he can get used to it being there. He's done everything really early, so I imagine (hope is more like it) that training will come early as well, although boys are generally harder to train than girls I've been told.

That's what I hear also.
So, seeing as your looking a ways down the road, I would assume the price would stay the same or increase a bit.
Kindercare
La Petite Academy
Those are a couple of daycare centers here in The Springs.

The place close to me was $129 for toddlers for 3 full days a week. I didn't jot down the full time price, since I was only looking at 3 days. I think 3 half days a week was $89.

That seems very reasonable. I currently pay $95 per week, but of course that's here in Oklahoma. I would like to get her info so that later on down the road I could check with her to see if she has any openings

Check with a referral agency. That's what I went through to find her. I was able to figure out what zip code I was moving into and then found so many licensed home daycares near my home. I called around until I found an opening and then I interviewed several before making my decision.
