  • I make abot 2400-3000 on a good month. But the bad part is its not a stable income kids come and go. Sometime you get lucky and keep kids for longer periods at a time. Sometimes you hit a ruff patch and wont have kids for awhile so you have to make sure you always have a back up plan. Well i hope this helped little and gl on your decision.

  • my daughter goes to a home daycare. I pay 110 a week. Right now the lady only has two kids so she is only making about 880 a month. The home daycare my daughter was is before this charged 100 a week. There were some week where she had up to 6 or 7 kids but most of the time she only had maybe 3.

  • My longest day care lady charged me $110 a week. As the children get older, the rates get a little cheaper; not much cheaper, only about $10 cheaper.

  • When we used an inhome daycare in MA, she charged $150 a week for my daughter who was around a year old. MA is very expensive when it comes to childcare. You should check the rates of the local daycares and make sure you are competitive.
