      This is a great idea, to protect everyone–parents, child care

      provider and child.

      I’ve never run a daycare but I’ve used several. 100 a week is too

      little to charge! Quality child care is worth more. Even with 5

      clients that is only $500 divided by 47.5 hours–just over $10 an

      hour. Take out taxes, self employment taxes, pay for some health

      insurance, and there will be little left over.

      Of course as a parent I would LOVE very cheap child care but I still

      feel that child care providers deserve to get paid a decent wage. I’d

      suggest calling several child care centers in the area and then

      pricing your service a bit lower (if you don’t supply all the

      services that the centers offer).
