Still cheaper than a full-time nanny but not by much. However, I cannot minimize the care and education the kids receive – it’s not a center where they are just ‘watched’. They have structured, age-appropriate learning so we are definitely getting what we are paying for but it still hurts to see it as our biggest line item in the budget. Especially since we live in one of the best public school districts but pre-k spots are not equal to the population.
No question my generation will have graduated with the most student debt possible, during a recession that wages haven’t recovered from, in the most expensive time ever to start a family, and I’m totally fine with carrying that burden if it means nobody else ever has to do this in the future.
