My wife and I had a little girl a few months back and my wife is taking a full year off work. To bring in a little extra money she's thinking about offering limited child care to someone in January. She's a kindergarten teacher, and prior to that she did infant day care, so she has experience handling multiple babies. She's certified in child CPR.
She has a couple of potential "clients" but she's unsure what to charge.
We're searching the internet for rates and she's going to ask some people she knows what they pay. But I was hoping people could share what the pay/charge for daycare or what the would expect to pay/charge. We're in Oakland, CA. We live in a nicer section of Oakland and the potential clients are from the same area.
Any idea what the going rate is for daycare for a baby 3 months to one year in age?
