Smile Day care costs in Fairfax area

Hi, I am trying to figure out what is the going rate for child care in and around Fairfax (both day care centers and home care centers).
Does anyone have any recommendations for a reputable one?
Thanks for your time

I think it's around $50/day or $230-250/week

It can depend on how old your child is. Babies and those still in diapers cost more. Some places also don't provide meals, those can be cheaper, but can be difficult to bring food every day and some kids eat better when they are eating the same thing that everyone else is.

Before & after school care is slightly less than $200 per week. If your child is younger and not in school, then you're looking at slightly more than $200 per week. If you have an infant, approximately $300 per week.

This doesn't answer the question about cost but may help you with evaluating quality:

Thank you Yankeesfan, that article was interesting, I didn't know that one could access day care info online.

Before and after elementary daycare at Hayden Elementary in Manassas cost $408 per month; that would be for k-4, before and after school. Not Fairfax, but may be a good gauge. BTW, that's in one of Manassas City's better neighborhoods; there are some crummy THs nearby, though.
