In this area, daycare centers usually cost $1000-$1600 per month.

Home daycares normally cost $600-$800 per month.

My 2.5 years old attended two daycares. $1300 in Leesburg. $1100 in Purcellville.

Wow! only $600-800 for home care per month? where??
My kid was in a home daycare in Arlington from 10 months to 16 months at $1080/mo.
Now at a center in Springfield. 2yr old $280/week, so ~$1170/month.

In loudoun and western fairfax, you can easily find home daycares charging $800 or less for toddlers. Lots of big SFHs and stay home moms. Guess Arlington and other urban areas are different. Also, infants are more expensive than toddlers.

- $1900/month + taxes and fees (social security, unemployment etc.)
- 17 months and almost 6 years (after school)
- Nanny in our home
- Leesburg

We did look at home daycares (licensed) which were about $200/week for the youngest and then some extra for oldest. But we wanted a situation where the kids can be at home and in case they are sick or school is out on a holiday we don't have to take PTO (unless they are really sick, of course).

I have an infant, so just did the "shopping around" for daycare in my area. In Sterling, I found daycare centers to be about $320-$375/week for an infant. We are using an in-home daycare provider for $225/week.

$250/week for a 1 year old in a licensed in-home daycare in Fairfax.

We live in the city, where the nearby centers ran anywhere from $1800 - $2000+ a month!
