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).
