I called a well-known child development center (i.e. daycare) near where we live today to inquire about infant care. I explained we are having twins and I need to know about local programs – especially cost.
After hearing about their 1:4 staff to infant ratio and their individualized curriculum for each infant, she got to the cost.
“Are you sitting down” She asked. (It’s never a good thing when someone is about to quote you a price and they are concerned whether you’re sitting or standing.)
“The cost is $245 per week per child – but you would get a 10% sibling discount on the second baby.”
I thanked her but I don’t really remember much more of our conversation. The number FOUR HUNDRED AND SIXTY FIVE kept running through my head. Per week. Fifty-two weeks per year. Over $24,000 a year.
