That was assistive.
"How much does childcare cost on average per month" You asked what this means.
In countries like Australia and US and UK (And I am sure many others including Georgia) Many families have both parents working.
Many families do not have the grandparents or other family members looking after the children during the day while the parents work.

Instead they pay for child care.  This question wants to know how much it costs per month to pay a business to look after your child during business hours while you work.

500GEL which is about 200$
