I made $15/hour to nanny a 3 and 6 year old. That is the only rate I have to go off of, but it's a start!

I do $20 a day per child. That's the average rate in Colorado.

The daycare centers around where I live for that age run $4.00 cheapest and $5.00 most expensive an hour.

It depends where you live. I'd say look up the averages for your area, and go from there.

It depends where you live.  Here in NY the going rate for a babysitter is about 10-20 per hour per child.  (I'm lucky and only pay $40 for a day regardless of how many hours DD is w/her)
