My two yr old started pre school last July.
I just looked around the local area, and started door knocking and getting info sent out.
Some of the prices between them can be very different ranging from $26.00 a day up to nearly $70.00. just depends on what hours you need and if they are a true pre school or a child care centre. Also some places provide meals some don't.
I found some wouldn't take children under 3(preschool) and they had to be toilet trained.
Some places I walked into I walked straight back out of, some were horrible and I wasn't going to let my child go there.
Child care is normally 0-5,6
Preschool normally 3-5
Where I go they have them from 2-6 and they don't have to be toilet trained, they will help out with that which is great.
Where abouts do you live???? What area are you looking????
Let me know if you need any other questions
