How much do you pay for before & after school care?

How much do you pay for before & after school care? I just placed an ad on Craigslist, but I'm still wondering how much to charge. Obviously I'll do less for morning care, as it will be a shorter length of time, but I still am curious as to just how much is reasonable.

  • Before I was a SAHM we payed $60.00 per week per child, and that was for only 2 hours every day. So $120.00 weekly. SOOO glad I'm home now.
