  • Our daycare charges us $40 per day ... so about $5 per hour, for kids from 6 wks - kindergarten age.

    6 hours per day X $5 X 3 kids = $90 X 5 days = $450 per week

    Our daycare does give us a price break if we have more than one kid enrolled, but I don't know what that is since I only have 1 kid.

    I would say asking for $350 a week is generous enough. But remember, are you supplying the food? If so, then charge more. If not, then I think the $350 would be fine.
