What would be a good price to pay someone that watches my son 3 days a week 11:45 am- 4:15 pm, Fridays 8:45 am- 4:15 pm. Then every other Saturday all 3 of my kids from 6:30 am- 4:15 pm?

I'm not sure. We pay $35 a day for our youngest. $25 a day for our five year old. They don't do Saturdays.

It really depends on where you are and what kind of child care. Like are you looking for a center, or a nanny, etc.? My ds goes to a center 2 days a week and we pay $40 a day. He can go anytime from 6am - 6pm. He's usually there from 8:30am until some time between 4 and 5:30.

It also depends on if they are providing the meals. I think $35 a day but then I would round up bc Saturdays (to me) are a bigger deal.

How old are the kids?
This is where I would start.
The week she or he watches just your son: $150-200 per week.
the weeks that saturdays are included: I would add $50-75 to your weekly rate.

Our old childcare lady charges $25 a day per child. But does give a discount if you have more than 2 kids.

Wow I never paid that much for a whole week. My old childcare lady charges $25 a day per child.

I've never really had to pay for childcare so I can't help you. My son did go to a daycare for a bit but that was 10 years ago. I paid $75 a week for 8-5:30 Monday-Friday.
