  • I don't know where you live but I am a daycare provider and I charge 15-20$ a day and $20-25 a night. I would say If I had that girl full time during the day it would be 75$

  • Childcare centers in the area where I live average out to be $15/hour or about $40-$80 a day depending on full or part day.
