How much would you charge?????? Legendary Yo Mama Due January 31 (boy); 12 kids; 724 posts

For watching an infant and 5 year old all week during work (5am-4pm). Holy crap, I just quoted a woman on the Internet a price and she was like "no, that's way too high" Do you think I live in a fantasy world? I used to pay my own MOTHER $50 a day to watch my kid.
Daycare here is $200 a week for a 4 yr old. I don't know about infants.
What's a fair price ladies???

People want everything for nothing these days.
It's disgraceful really.



Put the kid in daycare with 30 other kids.



Home daycare shouldn't be cheap just because it's in the home.

Probably $40-$50 a day as long as the parent provided diapers and food.

What did you quote her? I think $20 is way too little of an amount, taking care of a 5 year old and newb for 11 hours for 5 days is a lot of work

I pay 2.90 an hour for one kid. 3.90 for 2.
But that's at a daycare center.

I only ever had one in day care, the girl baby sat from 9-5. I sent lunches and snacks.
So I guess each. lol
