  • It depends on the age of the child and where you live. I live in Minnesota and the average for an infant is approx $7 an hour, the average for a toddler is approx $ 5.50 per hour, and it goes down the older the child is. I stay at home with my children only because I wasnt even making enough to cover daycare.

  • Here you won't find a daycare that charges hourly. It's usually around $20 per day, regardless of how long they are there.
