Childcare is Costly: How Much Do You Spend Each Year?

Parenting comes with a price tag! When mom and dad can't be with their child, someone else fills their shoes. Some families have grandparents or neighbors that step in, and others have to hire help or find a service to care for their kiddos. How much do you spend on nannies, babysitters, daycare centers, afterschool programs or other forms of childcare each year?

Childcare is so expensive!!! I am looking forward to my son switching to nursery school next year. The nanny costs 25k+ and school will cost around 6k. What a difference. Even with 2 kids in school (which will be happening soon enough), I will still be paying less than I pay my nanny now!
