Does your babysitter cost more or less than your daycare provider?

When I was in 8th grade I used to babysit for $8-10 and hr and I read about moms on here paying less than that for their children to be watched during the day...

  • I babysit for a friend & make $20 a day.... So i guess its about $2-3 an hour... I have him from 7:30am-4pm/5pm

  • If I sent my 13 month old to the daycare facility where I send my 11 year old, I'd have to pay $1000 a month. I pay his babysitter $30 a day, which pretty much adds up to $600 a month.

    Now, If I have my niece watch them at night for a few hours, I pay her about $7-$8 an hour.
