What's the going rate for a newborn and preschooler for full-time if you are not a licensed provider? Have been in the past, not interested in renewing my certification. It's been a few years and I'm wondering what the typical rates are now.

i am in boston but really? $15 per hour for 40hr/week? For two kids? That's $600 per week. That seems quite high. I was thinking that licensed centers are making around $200-250 here in RI depending on where you go for a newborn. I obviously wouldn't be charging that much. But i feel very out of touch with the norm for full-time prices for homecare settings since it's been a few years since I've done it.

Professional Nannys are $15-20 depending on expereince and # of kids, and our local home daycare providers are $50 per day per kid.

We pay $450 a week for a 40ish hour week (some days I stay longer than 8 hours, but I pay her for the full week even if it's a short work week and we come only four days). I have a four year old and a two year old.

My friend charged $10 an hour and found that she got more customers when she upped it to $12 an hour. People were wary of a cheap daycare. I think that $10 to $15 an hour is normal where I am for one child. For a newborn and a toddler it would be $15-$17 an hour I think.

We pay $50 per child per day for a babysitter who comes to us.

In our area (MW Boston, inside 128) the going rate is $15/hr BARE minimum. We've had our nanny for 5 years and pay her $18.50 an hour. That's for two preschoolers (she has them p/t) and one three year old. Yep, that works out to $740 weekly.

Exactly. I'd love to be a nanny again but I couldn't find anyone willing to allow my son being there, too.

We pay $1000/mo per child for full-time daycare (26-40 hours/wk) or $600 for part-time (11-25 hrs/wk), or $10/hr for drop-in. This is for a great licensed home-based provider south of Boston (Weymouth).

Holy smokes! We pay $30 per child/ per day at a small home daycare. I know it's a great deal, and it's fantastic care, but some of the rates you all are quoting are so high!
