How Much Does Daycare Cost in Austin, TX?

This page looks at daycare costs at Happy Bunnies Child Care School. While the average cost of daycare varies across settings in Austin, we keep our prices fair, and you will find our prices very indicative of the daycare cost Austin parents actually pay.

Many preschools do not display their prices on their website. Some actually vary the prices for each individual parent, basing prices on what they think you can afford to pay! At Happy Bunnies Child Care School, we believe the fairest way is to make it the same for everyone, and show actual rates here. That way, daycare costs per month are clear to you upfront. 

Why Does Child Care Cost So Much?

The main cost of child care is the teachers – it’s expensive to hire top people and train them for your children. When you are looking at daycare prices and the quality of education, it’s also essential you consider the teachers’ ratio to kids. Some schools operate at state minimum levels. You won’t find that’s the best situation for your child. (Happy Bunnies’ teacher-child ratios are excellent, well above the state minimum level.)

If you look at the average cost of childcare in Austin, you will find it’s usual to pay more for the best early learning center. However, at Happy Bunnies Child Care School, we understand this is a significant investment for you. We keep our prices affordable. We make sure the actual rates align with Austin’s average rates, despite the school’s high standing.

I cannot say enough good things about the team at Happy Bunnies. As a first time mom, dropping off my 3 month old for the first time was the scariest moment of my life. The regular updates and the loving care she gets at Happy Bunnies have made these 6 months with them (my daughter is now 9 months old) a dream. There is nothing better than knowing I am leaving her with people who care!

Christopher Solarz

We have had our child at Happy Bunnies for 18 months. We've been extremely satisfied with the care and instruction she's received.

Owner Magdalena is very educated in early childhood development. She's also been accommodating with our schedule, and with classroom placement for our daughter. We like that the kids spend a fair amount of time playing outside weather permitting. Our daughter loves her teacher and classmates and will miss Miss May.

Among other teachers, Miss Elle, Miss Natalie and Miss Alina, have been kind and helpful. So many parents in South Austin/Oak Hill/DS area looking for good childcare or MDO-style daycare - this is a good option for you!

We would recommend Happy Bunnies to any of our friends.

We have been sending our son to Happy Bunnies since he was just 3 months old. (He’s 17 months now) The staff at HB are more like family now, and we couldn’t be any happier. I especially love it when my son brings home artwork from the fun activities that they plan. These tiny pieces of art are something that I will always cherish.

What Does Daycare Cost Near Me?

Understandably, this is one of the main questions parents ask when looking at preschool education for their kids. Our prices are competitive, so the prices above give you a good idea of average preschool costs in the Austin area.

One thing to bear in mind if your schedule can vary, we offer you the option to swap sessions at no cost to you. That’s something very few daycares can match.

If you live outside the Austin area (even within Texas), prices will vary considerably, and your best best bet is to get in touch with a local daycare center. Look for one with top reviews on social media, as this is likely to give you a better indication – there’s no point in finding out the price of basic daycare when you need good preschool rates.

Assessing the Cost of Child Care In Austin

Preschool education is a significant investment. For some parents in the early years, childcare costs can equal the amount earned by one parent.

However, there are many things you need to consider when looking at the actual rates you’ll pay. For one, while it is, of course, fabulous for small children to spend time with their parents, it is also essential that they learn and socialize with other infants.

Secondly, children need structure and a balance of activities – educational as well as social. These programs take years to establish. The actual rates at the right preschool are high for a reason – they offer excellent training and programs for your child! 

Lastly, as wonderful as it is to teach kids yourself, it does you both good to have a little break once in a while. Even if you are a full-time stay-at-home parent, booking a few sessions at an excellent local school not only gives the kids time to develop and be with good friends, it gives you that space too. We have several parents who can afford to have their private nanny bring the children to our school – they see the value of a structured environment and interacting with other children.

So, when considering Austin childcare prices, you do need to bear in mind the benefit you are giving your little ones at this crucial point in their lives. They need the structure and educational preparation that only a solid preschool curriculum can offer. Children that attend our schools do better in later life.

Despite this, our actual rates are typical of the market for daycare cost Austin in general. 

Early learning center average prices are relatively high in Austin, yet it isn’t easy to find a good school. The fact is, there is a shortage of places – partly because Austin has been growing at such a rapid rate. As the market is expanding, so too is the rate of daycare cost Austin parents pay.
