This week we looked into preschools for our youngest son. Our favorite preschool comes with a hefty price tag of $320 dollars a month. This isn’t a snobby private school, just a normal preschool open to everyone. It’s only half day, and four days a week.
That’s $1280 a “semester” for a toddler to learn his letter sounds and count to 25. I just looked at the local community college and it’s only $1140 per semester for a full-time student. Now granted this is a community college, and regular colleges are about twice that, but it’s still an accredited institution with a qualified degree!
The fact remains that I can give my child a college education for less than it costs to send him to preschool. Does this seem right? Have you had the same experience?
