I'm going in for an interview on Thursday. I'll e going back into the work force hopefully. My 4 yo dd isn't in school yet, so I'll have to take her to a babysitter some days. How much would you pay for a day rate?

Daycare is 50/60/day here. So for a babysitter I would pay 30.

$50 for one kid that can wipe her own butt and make a peanut butter sandwich? Wow that's a lot! Do you think I would be super cheap if I was to pay the low end. $20.

30-60 per day is about average.

Depends on the going rate in your area. I use to do it for $25 a day but that was the going rate.

I'm a nanny right now, 24 hours a week to a 1 year old girl and a 3 year old boy and I get $15/hr  so about $120 a day....and as far as I know that's pretty standard in Canada where I live. :/

It just depends on the area. I do in-home childcare and I charge $20 per child, $30 for two sibs, etc..and no I honestly hate that childcare is so much. That's why I don't charge a lot.
