How much do you pay in tuition, camp, and babysitting per year *combined* for all your kids? And for how many kids.

I’m MO and sweating just thinking about it. We only have 1 so far, in playgroup full-time- can use up to 50 hours/week (though we usually only need 35-40 hours, but need the flexibility with erratic work schedules) for $20,000/year. MO tuitions run $12k+ preschool to $25k+ high school. There’s a reason everyone’s a doctor/lawyer/finance professional here…

Let’s hear your total annual number to keep your kids learning and growing year-round.

3 kids - two in elementary and one in playgroup. Total of $19,000 for school and day camp.

We do get a tuition break, without it, it would be around $29,000

Chicago and we get a significant break

Nursery tuition is 4400 (500 dollar grant from jewish federation) or it would be 4900

Two elementary tuition 3300 each

I pay $1100 a month in tuition camp is basically the same.

No babysitting

Camp is 435 for school camp and 760 for day camp for two kids and $380 for a month of back yard camp for my nursery age kid.

I am very very very grateful our school works with us to pay what we can afford. It’s a tremendous Bracha that I do not take for granted.

3 kids 1 in preschool 2 in elementary. Don’t know the exact numbers but it’s def less than 10k for the year. The perks of chassidish mosdos.
Playgroup is more expensive, was 450/month with my last one and keeps going up. Many here manage to get vouchers though.

approx 46,000 per year for 6 kids in elementary, middle, high school, yeshiva and college.
Thats with significant tuition breaks.
our family income is approx $82,000, so we are paying over 50% of our income to tuition. Dont ask how we manage and what we live on. Every month is something different, eg refund from insurance company, economic stimulus, tax refund...

We live OOT. 5 kids in elementary with many discounts, under $20,000.
3 kids away from home in high school / mesivta, about $40,000 (including some transportation costs)
Camp about $10,000
With book fees and incidentals it pushes us over $70K.

My autistic kid's school recently lowered their tuition from 128,000 to $80,000. As I have a yeshiva kid too, my tuition is in the highest range on your poll.

I'm up to my youngest now, so I voted the first category. My older girls have graduated the school/camp phase.
