Quoting Mama to J ♥:" Do you ever feel like a failure because you just cannot afford a good daycare or school for your child? ... [snip!] ... kids have the best? Its like you want them to have the best education but you just know that you cannot provide it.... "
That's a lousy feeling. Sorry that's how is is right now. Hopefully you will make more soon and can afford better pre-school or can afford to live in a district with good public schools.
I'm not sure how old your child is, but until close to 4, i dont think they need much academic focus, so dont get too worried about that right now.
Is there a home-based mom that you can pay? Have you looked into Care.com?
