A lot goes in to deciding what to charge families for child care. I take in to consideration the hours I offer care as well as the hours that I work planning activities and preparing for the upcoming weeks during my free time in the evenings and on weekends.

I take in to account the supplies I purchase for crafts and learning as well as new toys and equipment for the children when needed. I also pay someone to come in and do an interactive music class one day each week.

I charge a flat weekly rate for each child. Once you sign a contract for child care your rate is locked in for one year.
