For daycare in Toronto, do you think these monthly rates for full time care are priced just right for the market? Meaning is it average?

Infant $1400/mth
Toddler $1250/mth
Preschool $1150/mth
Kindergarten $980/mth

Please let me know your thoughts and opinions on these prices for Toronto.
Looks about right ... it maybe even more in the upscale neighbourhoods in Toronto (city not suburbs).

2 years, 3 full days $1090 York region
This is way too expensive. My son is 1.5 and I am paying $960/month (to $1050) for him (full time, 5 days a week) in Woodbridge.
Save a lot but end up spending more :confused:

What's crazy is that actually seems reasonable. I can not find anything near that price in Markham.

Daycares in Markham are all around the $1,100 to $1,300 a month range - have not been able to find anything? Private schools maybe slightly higher tho due to their supposed "prestige".

Maybe my math is off, but how is $31/day the same as $1100/mth lmfao. $31 x 20 = 620.

I charge $950.00 per month for the 30 months to 6 years group. This includes lunch, 2 snacks and before/after school (7am to 6pm). Also, I am a Montessori school (licensed) in Scarborough. For toddlers, I charge $1050.00 and this also includes all of the above. No subsidy, for profit

No more before and after, which is going to be what I'll be facing when our little one turns 4 in two years?

Read that the school may not hire more staff for that program but I'll get in touch with the school maybe half a year before the September opening

I pay $1080 for a toddler. Another daycare closer to home, Kids & Co, charges $1350. For $270/month extra, you can spy on your kid(s) to your heart's content, and be that super-duper-hyper-ultra-mega helicopter parent. :D

There are no apostrophes in plurals! "I have 1000 posts" = correct. "I have 1000 post's" = incorrect!
