Day care is a great option for parents working full-time, however, it comes at an expensive cost. While it provides parents with the opportunity to return to work, it can also take a toll on your finances.

You may find yourself paying for:

  • Gas or public transportation to and from day care
  • Fees if you’re late to pick up your child
  • Excursion fees
  • Some day care services still require you to pay on public holidays

A recent study suggests that parents are spending around $40,000 for the first two years of a child’s life, and day care is a big expense of this!

To help you find a way to save on day care, we have our top 5 tips below!
