I do my rates two ways. I do daily prices for kids who I will not be watching for more than 4-5 days a week, and then weekly rates for those I will be watching. I also do overnights, and last minute childcare as well. 

My weekly rates are as followed:
One child: 65 dollars a week 
Two children: 75 dollars a week (not per child)
Three Children: 95 dollars a week(not per child)


My daily rates are as followed:
One Child- 15 dollars a day
Two Children- 25 dollars a day(not per child)
Three Children- 30 dollars a day(not per child)

I am in St. Charles  Missouri i that matters.

My kids are grown but a friend of mine sends her son and it's $25 a day where he goes...you sound very reasonable...

I charge $200 a week and $10 an hour for drop in. Consider that it will cost you $7-$10 a day in food alone you should reconsider your prices.
