Rate for childcare???

I have an interview saturday to provide full-time childcare for a 10 month old in her home or mine, I was wondering what the average rate is that I should charge. I know they're are alot of factors but I just need a ballpark estimate....

I live in Northern Arizona by the way, cost of living is kind of high

  • I have a sitter who watches my son in her home. She charges $30 a day. If I want him to have specific food I provide it otherwise this includes a nutritious lunch and two snacks. Good Luck!

  • I pay $250 per day. I think that's kind of high though.

  • I pay $170/week for center care for my 10 month old. When I used in-home she charged $35/day. This is not a high cost area though. When we lived in the Chicagoland area, infant care was $300/week at the cheapest.

  • Reasonable rates in our area :100/week for infant, 85/week for toddler going full time. Don't know about older than that, my older is just two.
