How much per day for a babysitter/childminder?


How much does a babysitter or childminder charge per day?

For one child, 1 to 3 or 4 years old?

What do they include in their rates typically?

Rates vary pretty widely in my city with neighbourhood. The suburbs have lots of SAHMs opening dayhomes so they can earn some cash while staying home with their kids, and earn some pretty sweet tax write-offs on their houses for having a home business. There's a lot of supply, so most places would charge ~ $700/month for full-time care (Mon-Fri). That would usually be from 7:30/8:00 am to 5:30/6:00 pm and would include all meals and snacks.
I live inner city in Calgary where there are far fewer dayhomes available. I pay $925/month for what's described above. I believe it goes down to $850 or maybe less when Simon is 18 months?
Childcare is apparently much more expensive in Alberta than most of eastern Canada. All I know is that when I go back to work next year after baby boy #2, I will pretty much be working for childcare. Ouch.

Thanks to MIL Kathryn goes to a day care center 2 full days (6:30am-6:30pm, though Kathryn doesn't even wake up till 7 so she usually goes from about 9-6) a week for $800 a month (sooo expensive but such a great place, she learns so much there, and MIL's paying and she wants the best for Kathryn), she's in a class of 8 kids in her age range with 2 "teachers." If you get a babysitter to come to your house to watch your LO they may charge anywhere from $10-20 per hour depending on age, experience, etc. (before I had my kids I watched a 2 year old and sometimes his 5 year sis too 2-3 days a week and some nights when the parents went out, I made $15 an hour)
Hope that helps

Here, which is probably comparable in living/wage costs we pay at least $30 for a baby under 2 years old... and for children older then 2 it is $25 per day. She will also take kids for part of the day for $5/hour... she takes older kids before and after school.

This is based on a typical 8 hour work day. Our daycare lady does a snack in the morning, lunch and then a snack in the afternoon, which she provides. I used to send food but there was no point because all the kids just want to eat what the other ones are eating.
