I used to watch 2 girls and baby and kindergartner. I also watched a few other school aged kids for a while. I didn't like it after a while. It really cut into my family time with my kids and me being able to get my kids to their afterschool activities. When I had my baby I decided to not watch kids on a regular basis anymore. The girls I watched have someone else watching them and I told them if they need me for occasional times that's fine but not full time anymore. I also do back up care for my friends home daycare and another friend of mine.
I was approached by a neighbour the other day asking me if I would watch their girls come september. It would be every morning from 8:30 to 9, I'd be dropping them at the bus stop around the corner. And the one girl would be every other monday and every wednesday. Their dad get's home at 3 in the afternoon so it wouldn't cut into my evenings with family and activities. I think this would be a much better fit for me and my family, plus we could use the money.
What do you think? I'm pretty sure we're going to do this but would love to hear other's opinions. What should I charge? I would be providing lunch and snacks. $30 a day? I would give them receipts too.
