OK first off a nanny does NOT watch a child in the home of the care taker a Nanny is one that takes care of a child in the childs home. You would be a day care provider. the avrage person can barly afford 5 an hour. Up here people get 2.50 to 3.50 an hour.

I paid my day care provider like 3$ an hour in Michigan. I know in MIchigan, when you get state funded daycare, they only pay the providers 1.90 an hour.

Just a word of advice.. I wanted to babysit some other kids in my home along with my then 15 months old daughter. Most people did not want me to watch their kids while my kid was around and one lady even offered more money to send my own child to daycare while i watched hers..

I guess it would depend. It also depends on how long you're going to take care of the child. I was paid less than 3 dollars an hour for full time child care and I was paid 125 a week.  For baby sitting I guess it'd be different. I would say maybe 5-10 an hour wouldn't be bad if you're going to babysit for maybe 1-3 hours.

not everyone is like that I never had anyone tell me that or i wouldn't have accepted them.

Basically you're asking what a  babysitter charges because you're not going to be taking care of them like a nanny does at the person's home. You can get on care.com and there are people that average from 5-15 an hour

To me all your options are too high. You really wouldn't be a nanny just a daycare provider. My friend is a nanny and I'm an at home daycare provider and there is a big difference in our jobs.

If your wanting to do daycare at your home I would do $3 or $20 a day for all day care. That's what is normal in my area.

YUP!

I make about 3.33 a child at my childcare. If you go into their home the going rate is about 10-15 an hour.
