Hey! I saw your post about how kids are not expencive I was wondering, do you have any advise for affordable childcare? I'm pregnant with my first child and me and my husband are separated. I only make like 1500$/month after taxes and everything and every daycare I look at is $200/week minimum and I don't think my husband is going to help me pay for it. I feel very anxious because I don't know how I'm going to work when child care would cost over half my wages. Thank you.
I’m really not sure of your location, but daycare can cost between $2 dollars-$15 an hour. Our state helps cover the cost of sitting up to $10 an hour, which is quite a bit. I imagine you would easily qualify. Most states the school district has preschool programs that began at 3, and if your child has any milestone delays it can be from the time the delay is noticed. I would ask other working parents, interview day cares and schools, ask all of them about low-income discounts.
