How much$$$

I am a SAHM with an almost 3 year old and a 3 month old. I might be doing childcare for a 2.5 yo and I am wondering what the normal amount to charge would be?
This will be the first time I've done childcare for profit since I was a teenager babysitting. Lol, that was quite some time ago.
What is a decent rate for me to charge?
I don't want to over charge since she's a single mom but I don't want to screw myself either.

  • The going rate here is 30 to 45 a day for full time care but if you are not licensed, which I am assuming you arent, I would only charge about $20 a day.
