It really differs by area and what you offer. I would call around to other babysitters in your area asking about their prices and make yours accordingly.

Good luck!

i like to be fair i know how hard it is on parents to pay for child care if it is weekly i charged 10 to 15 a day per child if it was by hour about minimum wage. But i had parents provide the food for there kids because i know a lot of picky eaters and my kids ate everything it also made it easy to know about the kids and thier family and if the kids had food allergies i provided snacks if u decide to open an in home daycare in kansas u can only have 6 kids and that includes your own look it up for ur area

I would call around in your area and ask.  Call both in home places and centers, then you will have a good idea.

Definitely call around to other providers in your area to see what the going rate is.
