This question is for the parents that use day cares...?

How much an hour does a daycare charge? (You can just put your daycare provider price). I am trying to figure out a decent price to start my daycare with. Thanks in advance.


What would be part-timers? I know it would be anything less than full time (which would be 5 days a week) so would part time be 3 days or 4 days or either or? I NEED HELP haha. Thanks in advance again.

    I think generally a home daycare has a daily rate with specified hours of operation (kids can be dropped off after 7am and picked up before 5pm or something like that) and an hourly rate for either part-time kiddos or drop-ins.

    In my area it's appx $25/day (I've seen 22-30) and $4/hour. In my experience home daycares don't charge different rates for infants and toddlers, as just one person has a max quota for kids anyway and couldn't have bunches more in a room if they're older.

    Your best bet is to register first, which will involve state inspection as well as coursework. There should be protocols in the registration process that will help you determine what you need to do. Then call around to some other home daycares in your area - your price will largely be dictated by what others around you charge. There is a pretty good network of women who do this as a profession depending on where you live - they tend to get to know one another so if you can find one you'll likely be able to find more. You can usually ask for advice, too, as from what I've seen it's not cut-throat competitive for clients. Pretty much there are always parents looking for care, and usually the home day cares are filled up.

    Good luck!

    Most daycares vary by age. If you have afterschoolers price varies too. Normal fee is 75 a week for birth -2yrs. 65 for the others and then you have part timers which are 40 week. The same goes for after schoolers. Hope this helps.
