How much would you expect to get paid???

For watching 3 kids, ages 5,7, & 9 in these situations:

The 5 year old only from 11:30am-3:00pm, then the other 2 get off the bus and you have all 3 from 3:00pm-8:30pm?? Is $50 a day decent, not including food??

Then when they dont have school having all 3 of them from 9:15 am-8:30 at night, and getting $60 a day??

Then as far as food goes, getting $50 extra for food. This is feeding them lunch,snack and dinner, then another snack at night.

So a total of $300 per week when they have school (45 hours) and $350 per week when they dont(55 hours).

  • 45-55 hours of raising someone elses babies for them? I don't think that's fair at all. When my 2 kids were in a home based daycare part time (30 hours a week) I was paying them 200 bucks a week. I think these parents are trying to get out of daycare prices, don't let them get away with it. I wouldn't do it for less than 400 a week. Or 15.00 an hour.
