Hi S. -

Right now my son is almost two and we pay $175/wk. It will go down to $155/wk. once he is 3 AND potty trained. When we started at this in-home daycare, he was an infant and we paid $190/wk. I know these prices are a bit higher than several other in-home daycares that I interviewed, but it's less than a daycare center, like Kindercare. That was $220/wk for full time infant care when I called about it. I accepted paying a bit more, even though it's hard on our budget, because she was the first daycare provider I felt like I could really trust! That's a big step when you're putting your little baby in someone else's care for so many hours each week.

Hope that info is helpful. I'm also in Rosemount, but I interviewed in Rosemount and Eagan. Our current provider is close to our house in Rosemount, so that's another plus.

Feel free to email me if you have questions.

we pay $175/week per child for 4 full days a week, m-th, then once a month we pay an extra $25 for music class, which is for a woman who comes in for an hour a week.We also pay a fee at the beginning of the year for membership to children's museum and the zoo for outings. We have 2 girls at the same in-home daycare in St. Paul.

Most of the daycares I've seen are around $150-$180 per child in a Home Daycare.
Hope this helps! And good luck!

Hi S.,
I've been doing inhome care since December 04 in Apple Valley and my rate for a 35-50 hour week is $125. For an infant, that includes baby food, wipes, bedding, etc. Parents supply the diapers, formula, extra sets of clothing, and lovey. I priced when we first moved here and centers run a lot higher, especially if you're looking for part time care. Different suburbs have different rates, but it doesn't vary a whole lot in the metro. Good luck!
