Post from Patch Brookline in 2014 About Daycare Cost In Brookline and Boston
Childcare centers in Brookline generally garner rave reviews, but the cost of enrolling children in early education remains one of the highest in the state.
The cost of sending an infant to the two biggest Brookline child care providers — Knowledge Beginnings and Bright Horizons — is about $26,000 a year for a five-day-a-week program, well above the $16,430 average in Massachusetts, according to the Child Care Aware of America’s 2013 report.
But demand for early education in Brookline remains high.
Knowledge Beginnings, which has been at 5 Brookline Place for 17 years, is packed with children and almost always has a waiting list of parents. The infant program is full until September.
