Looking to move to the area towards the end of next year. Looking to get an idea of how much full time daycare costs and after school care costs? Coming from NYC, so I expect it is significantly less

I never used daycare so I have no idea, but since pre-k is not in most of our schools, you'll need to have it until kindergarten.

As of a few years ago, it was about $700 to almost $1,000 for full-time, with the higher end being the franchised places. This was for children who were already out of diapers.

Yes for one. Cost of living is lower here, but not massively so. That would be a savings of $500-700 a month for you which is pretty significant.

Yes, we have a nanny now (who is awesome) and she's $15/ hour (care.com and sittercity.com are good sites for nannies).
