  • I pay $35/day and that includes all food and drinks at a licensed facility with multiple children. I think the standard is $30 - $50 a day for full time, 5 days a week.

  • I paid $100 a week Monday-Friday 9 hr each day and I had to only provide 3 or 4 sets of clothes, and she provided the diapers and made him breakfast, lunch and gave him a afternoon snack.. I also would go there during my lunch break....I would not pay $150 for a child that is 1 yr + and have to provide food... and charged a fee if I do not get there b4 the 9 hrs is up...

  • I would say $30 a day and you provide their food and drinks

  • $30 a day if you provide food, diapers, xtra clothes. It is a lot easier for a childcare provider to make all the kids the same thing. So $35 a day and she should make breakfast, lunch and snacks. $5.00 a day x 5 days =$25 for food a goes a long way, trust me I've watched kids for 10 years.

  • I pay $167/ wk so about $33.40 a day this includes 2 meals and a snack. The hours are from 6AM- 6:30PM but she is usually there for about 10 hours while I commute and work. Oh and I know another daycare in town charges $10/hr or $50 a day for drop-ins.
