How much do you pay for after school care?

I have been asked to keep two children after school until 6pm and was wondering what the going rate is.

  • In our school district, an after school program is offered until 6 pm, at the school and supervised by teachers. It's $7 per day, so I know that no one in my area would really want to pay more than that to a babysitter because otherwise, they'd just use the school's program. Just something to think about.
