What is a good rate for home daycare?

What should I charge to watch a 13 month old still in diapers Fri through Wed from 1:30 Pm to 11:00 Pm? Any ideas?

  • I would think 150 a week. It depends who it's for too. If it was family I wouldn't charge as much unless they make alot of money. Make sure they bring their own stuff too.

  • well look into what your daycares in the area charge i know here in eastern washington for a baby that age would cost around 125 a week. but id look and see what they are charging in the area. and its up to you on how you wana charge if you go buy hour i would say your not going to be able to charge alot cuz at 5 dollers a hour for just hours is 45 bucks which may sound expencive to some. i charge the lady i watch her daughter 125 a week and shes 14months.
