My SIL may end up watching little one a couple of days/week. She had mentioned that she wouldnt mind being a "cheap day-care" and I trust her implicitely.
Only downside is she'd want summers off since her LOs will all be home from school and they do a lot of things - - they have a big car but they'd need a bus for their 4 plus my LO...
My question is - what do you think a "cheap day-care" rate would be?
The big-time day-care centers around town are around $60-$65 per day... Basically I am looking at 8 days a month for her to watch LO - would $250 or $300 be reasonable or would that be too low? It would be about $30-40 per day (probaby 7:30am- 4:30pm).
Just wondering if anyone else pays a family member or what the deal is... I also get 1 day/wk off and offerred to watch all of them if she needs to go shopping/run errands during the day as a type of trade-off.
