I've been supporting a family of 5 for close to a year now and it's getting pretty difficult. I'd prefer to have my wife stay with the children but I completely understand why she wants to get back into the workforce.

Unfortunately this means that I have to find after school care for my 6 year old and day care for my twin 10 month olds. I researched a few and was staggered by the price tags that come with child care.

I've heard of Child Care of Southwest Florida (which tends to offer parents assistance) but they don't have any facilities in Cape Coral.

Can anyone recommend a place in the Cape?

Child care is expensive. I would say 80% or more of child care in FL is subsidized due to low income. Ridiculous. We pay $140/wk for our 3yr old for full time care. Plus, we are the ONLY clients that pay 100% out of our own pockets!! Everyone else there is on assistance! Good luck finding "inexpensive" child care. Don't think it exists. If you want quality care, you will have to pay for it.
