In our situation it is not worth the cost. I have 3 kids that would require daycare even some evenings until after 6pm and weekends if I worked since dh works 5am to whenever wich generally 4pm or 5:30pm(drive time for him over 30 min home) m-f and works 5am to 11 or 1:30pm on Saturdays. So not only would I be paying major daycare but finding those later evening plus weekend sitters for a good quality one not easy.
Then you have to factor in the full time care for summer and school breaks yeh here for summer for 3 kids m-f full time would cost me $400 bucks umm yeh would not work. So until I can get a job in a school even a district near me it does not make financial sense at this time.
I did work when my two oldest were younger until I was in the hole from daycare and other expenses I save on car insurance now, no professional work clothes, eating out wich we did because I was to tired to fix dinner at times. So we tried it for many years and overall was not worth it.
