Hi, I will be moving from Chicago to DFW in search of lower cost of living. Can someone please give me an idea of what I should expect to pay weekly or monthly for childcare for a 19 month old? I do prefer centers, due to the fact that I have no family in the area and need that stability. I currently pay $270 a week.

Depends on who you know. My bosses wife owns a daycare and I only pay $150 a week for my 13 month old. That doesn't include supplies though. We bring the supplies there for her to use. Its a great place and the lady who runs it is very nice and does a great job. Shop around and you'll find something.

I think most the "chain" style daycares are around $200-$250/week for a child under 2 years old

When I was looking, I focused on the NE Richardson area and most were $1100-1300 a month! One was even $1600 a month. They're very proud of their schools. I found a great daycare at the First Baptist of Plano (14th and M across from Dickies BBQ) for only $830 a month! I never thought I would use a church daycare because we're non-practicing, but also because they are usually only part time mother's day out programs. This one is full time, year round, not just school year, and they were great. I was sad when I had to move to Austin and now pay about $1000 a month.
