I know this varies a lot, but what would you consider a good price for lessons for your kids (like swimming, music, dance, gymnastics, art, etc).
Does your community center offer classes like this?
Every activity has a different price point and a different schedule and payment situation, there is no way I could give just one number and say it's a good price. It could be vastly different.
Dance is once a week for 24 weeks and costs $300 plus cost of recital outfits. Football is a signup fee of $275 plus non-rented equipment (cleats, etc) I charge $50/hour to give private riding lessons or $35/per student for a group. My sister took piano lessons and that was $10 for a half hour I believe.
Oh, and I should add.....what Community Center? We don't have anything like that, with the exception of team sports everything is privately owned and run.
We have just started ds in gymnastics once a week and it costs us $80/month. We have wanted to get him into a cheaper park & rec one for years, but it was offered after 7 pm on a weeknight because other sports took gym space priority over little kids gymnastics, and that's too late for us. It's so good for him, so we finally just accepted we have to pay $80.
Dd will start a dance class after she turns 3 and there is a small studio that offers ballet once a week for $30/month, they have 2 recitals a year that don't cost extra (it's an amazing deal for around here)
I recently started taking both kids to an open swim program in a year round warm pool and it's $120 for 8 weeks, once a week for an hour.
We are fortunate to have programs through the rec department, art museum and YMCA.
Art classes are $50 for four 2 hour classes
Rec department is usually $40 for 6 lessons - tennis, basketball, soccer, etc.
Swimming is $50 - 6 sessions for non-members at the Y, $35 for members. Our family membership is $50 a month.
Swim team varies but it's about $5 per practice
