  • If it was a friend of mine who really doesnt make enough money I would do it for about $30 a day for full time and $20 for part time, of course this child would follow my own child's activities which are many and would participate in play groups etc...

  • Depends on the number of days and hours. Look up in your area for the going rate.

  • Minimum of $150 a week for full-time care. I was a licensed daycare provider for 9 years and this is less than the going rate in California. For 2 kids you may want to add $50 a week if it is in your budget.
