I'm wondering if any of you ladies would be able to help me figure out how the daycare scene works down in Raleigh region.

I havea 5 years old autistic son who will be in full time school so I don't have an issue with him being cared for, but my 1 month old daughter is who I'd need someone to watch while I go to work 9-5, DH will more then likely be working similar hours and be home at night so I can go to night classes.


How much is the average daycare in the region for an infant ball park range. I been googling ALOT but nothing really comes up price wise. I know hiring a private sitter / SAHM would be cheaper but I do not know ANYONE down here.

    I actually worked at a daycare in the past, and I was NOT impressed by what I found. I'm not sure where you're located, but East Wind Nannies is a nanny placement agency and they have locations in Columbus, Philadelphia, pittsburgh, and chicago. Their website is Good luck!

    I pay $40 a day for five days a week. So $800 a month for a babysitter. She's 19:-)

    When I looked I found stuff like 25-30 bucks a day. I think.
