  • 150-200 depending on where you live and by all means be clear about reporting the income,,,when DS was first little I had him in a home situation and being a new mom,,didn't ask about the reporting of the income,,,so we got no tax credit! Good luck!

  • I do babysitting out of my home and I charge $65 a week for 1 child. I am not a licenced childcare provider. I only do it to help out other moms that can't afford what a daycare costs. Since I work from home(I have my oen business) I work around having kids.

  • I charge 60 a week to help out the mom, but don't report the income, so she doesn't get a child care credit.

  • varies A LOT by quality of care, where you live, etc. where my son goes now, it would be $500/month for an 18 month old to go full time. where we lived before and he went before, it was more like $700/month for full time for that age.
