  • Depends on the time frame and number of kids. For an evening out with my husband (about 6 hours) I pay $50 for two kids. For one child I would pay $30.

  • It would depend on the time frame. If my needy 5 month old would let us leave,I would pay about $50 for her and my 8 year old for an evening out. Most in home daycare providers would charge about 20-25/a day for a infant/toddler
