    im not going to calculate anything but probably about 12.75 would be my guess. If you look into some churches, some of them not have free child care services. Also, I believe the govt might help pay for your childcare- worth looking in to.

    how many hours a day are you working? how many days a week. what are you claiming on your W-4?
    how far do you travel to get to work? are you paying into social security or for a health plan? add up
    what you make a week then take about 20% away from that.

    you don’t provide enough information
    you know that 5.65% is withheld for FICA.
    1.2% for SDI in Calif.
    if you have a child but not hoh then you must be married so you need to consider both your incomes to determine if returning to work is worth paying the child care
