Default Best Daycare Centers in North Raleigh?

Hi all,
We're anticipating a move to the North Raleigh area sometime early next year and I'd like to start scoping out the daycare situation. I've got a one-year-old and currently use a stay-at-home mom while I'm at work. It's an arrangement that's worked well for me, but thought that I might explore daycare centers since we're making the transition.

In your opinion, what are the better centers? Do they have any website links? What are the prices for infant care?

Thanks so much!

North Raleigh covers a wide swath of land. I use Primrose School of Hilburn and are very happy with the care my son receives. From what I've read, costs for infant care tends to run in the $800-$1200 range. Primrose would be at the upper end of the price range.

Are there a need for daycare centers in some areas? I am looking into moving to Raleigh and want to open a daycare business.

There will always be a need for good quality care for children...but I cant say there is a shortage of daycare places either.

When RFB said $800 to $1200 -- should I assume that that's the cost per month? Are they any other recommendations?

Yes, that is per month...and that is about average. You can find some cheaper places, but the point there is if you are really willing to subject your child to them? They tend to have higher turn-over at the very least, as they just don't pay their help well.

I couldn't agree more. We play our daycare provider ~$1200 a month right now for care during the week. The one nice thing about using her though is that she doesn't charge us for days that our daughter isn't in her care. (So, Christmas week, for instance, is a freebie since she's home with us.) It's a nice perk and one I'll certainly miss when we move!
