subsidy covers when she GOES to daycare, but not visiting fees. so does anyone know approximately how much visiting fees are?
i've called the daycare Alysha is in three times in the past two weeks so i'm putting off having to call them again if i don't need to.

TIA.

really?
well here you take your kids to visit before they go there full time so its not such a big change.
two weeks before you bring your child in to the daycare WITHOUT and you hangout there every other day or so for a couple hours
and they charge you for it.

i actually work in child care and the way my center does it they take the part time pay and divide it by 31 and everyday that you come thats what they charge for example if part time is 250 the daily rate would be like 8.06 but for an infant you take the weekly divide it by 5 and thats what you pay for example 125 a week would be 25 a day. do you get what i mean?

i guess i've been lucky then.. because the two times i had to pick a new daycare, i was able to take her to visit and they didnt charge me at all. I came several times with her and wasn't charged unless I left her there.

Yah I have never heard of that. My friend has used two different daycares and did not pay for anything like that however I am not sure if she did the trial thingy first or just jumped right in.

yeah some daycares dont charge but the one i work for they are so stuck up and charge for every little thing. the only good thing is that they provide sippy cups and wipes but other than that the charges are crazy. the lady who took over decided that she didnt want to accept government funds and so many people had to find new childcare. it was so sad. if it wasnt for the children and the fact i have a child to support i wouldnt work there anymore

oh okay. And, at the daycares I used, we brought our own diapers, wipes, food, formula, clothes, bottles, etc. They put it all in a tote with the child's name on it and only used his or her own supplies. It kept the cost down A LOT and I really didnt mind, since Myra's skin was so sensitive and I refused to feed her jarred food.
They did have the option of you using their food, and i think it was required once they got out of the infant room, and of course, that was an extra charge. But once you got out of the infant room, it was actually a little cheaper because of the ratio difference.

yeah i never heard of visiting fees before,


i visited abby's daycare just cause they remodoled (sp?) it, but really i didnt do the trial thing cause i went to that daycare when i was a kid and the same people work there still so i wsnt worried at all.


but i dont see how it could be super expensive if you only go a couple of hours since a full day here is 35$

see where i work they charge by the week not the day so if you bring your child one day you have to pay the week price. they wont do daily pay. the trial thing that they do is after they register because you can look and see if you like the daycare for free but they so picky about EVERYTHING

I work in the daycare business, and I think what you are referring to is "drop-in" fees. ...Maybe more people would recognize that. Basically you have to pay to "drop-in" to see your child, or in your case to bring your child before you actually enroll her full-time. The
