There are several Day Care providers in Tomahawk..how you determine which are good and which are not is on an individual basis...the cost for 2 full time? some where around $200.00 per week, give or take...

I didn't think that was hard question. I asked which ones are good. I asked because maybe I would be able to find a good one that other people have used or are using.

Being in the day care profession for the past 11 yrs. I would not recommend putting a child into a large group center. My suggestion would be to hire a personal Nanny or find a really nice Family Day Care. If you contact the Wisconsin Child Care Connection, I believe they can give you a list of all regulated providers in the area.
