Hello all,
I am considering a move to Edmond OK in a few months, and am trying to get an idea about daycare costs.
I have a 2yr old toddler, who will likely need to attend daycare fulltime (M-F, all day).
I tried to look up tuition info for Goddard, La Petite, etc, but could not get anywhere.

Could you please give me an idea on average daycare costs for established/franchise places (like Goddard)?
Thanks so much!

Have you contacted the facilities?

No, because I am not in OK yet, and a lot of them require a visit to their facilities prior to providing financial info. I am just trying to get a sense for average daycare costs at this point..

About 15yrs ago when we visited Goddard the tuition was something over $600 a month for our then 3yr old. The facility is nice with fresh prepared meals and such.
We also visited La Petite but were not impressed. Maybe it was the fact that there were no individual rooms just areas divided by book/toy shelves, even though I was in a similar facility when I was younger and turned out fine.... mostly. Maybe it felt more like a daycare than a learning facility or maybe it was the staff, it's been a few years I just remember we didn't like it.

The best thing is for the mother to stay at home and raise the child. 2 years old is much too young to institutionalize a child. Why have them if you aren't going to raise them. With that said I have a cousin in north Edmond that does in-home day care. She charges $1200 per month. She keeps 2 children at a time and currently the waiting list is over a year. I can pm you her number if you want in the que.

How is a SINGLE mother, who NEEDS to work to support herself & children, supposed to that? Do not JUDGE and post your judgment here, before you know ALL of the facts...

LOL. Nothing like asking for information on a message board and getting a lecture.

What a nasty response. "Don't work, but if you have to do something so awful, you should use my cousin as your provider." (Of course he would never say such a thing to the FATHER.)

Totally agree with both of you. OP, if you'd said you were on welfare, that poster would likely be whining about how taxpayers had to support your kids. But if you want to use daycare, well, you're a horrible mother. Single moms can't win, can they?

Threestep, it was because of the lecture. The poster was (I think deliberately) being a jerk, e.g. calling using daycare "institutionalizing" the child and saying "Why have them if you can't raise them" -- as if parents who use daycare, usually because it's the best if not the only option, somehow are not "raising" their kids. Again, what a nasty, mean-spirited remark from someone who knew NOTHING of the OP's situation.
