Daycare Costs Go Down Over Time

Something I wasn't aware of with daycare was a pleasant surprise...the costs go down as the baby ages.

cost of daycare goes down over time

If you look at the graph, you'll see a slight bump right before it starts declining. This bump is due to inflation, so that was the yearly adjustment. What caught us off guard is that the babies require less attention as they age, so the daycare costs go down. We got price breaks at roughly 1 year, 18 months, and 22 months, and those correspond to him advancing (infant first, then crawling room, etc.).

It's not a massive decrease, but it is enough to notice since daycare costs are such a huge part of the expense of having a baby, so I figured I'd post it.
