Yep! When DS was in kindergarten, I would get very specific direction from him about what time to pick him up. It was NOT to be before outside time.

I guess if your salary is low, I could see that.

I live in a high cost area too but in my district only has before care for an hour and a half (which I think it is either $8 or $9/day as I have never used but my child is signed up for it if I needed to use it) and after care for 3 1/2 hours for $11/day.

We can't pay by the day either, it has to be paid at the beginning of the month for the days you plan to use that month or it gets rolled over to the next month.

My school does not have care for school days off and breaks. For that I either take the day off or use the town camp.

Before care here varies as the school start time varies (from 8:00-9:15am) , but it starts at 7:15am.

Yes, it is the same here as we have 12 elementary schools in our district. The price does vary by the times but only by $1/hour.

Mine is currently $162 a month for before/after care. For one fifth-grader.
