The average cost of Daycare depends on various factors, such as the age of the kid, the location of one’s residence and the quality of the Daycare center. Basically, if the child needs daycare during the office hours of the parent, i.e. approximately between 10 am – 6 pm, the average cost of daycare will vary from $150 - $300 per week. This again depends whether the daycare staff is expected to make sure of the daily typical activities of the child only. However, the rates will be increased by 15-20% if the daycare staff is asked to perform more enriched activities. The cost of daycare will be slightly higher in case of a one year old child.
