just curious, if the home daycare you worked for is down on enrollment what makes you think you'd be able to get 2-3 kids in yours??? The HOURLY rate for a babysitter is higher than a daycare provider but that is because parents are using a babysitter for a few hours here and there - not for 40 hours a week! If full time daycare in your area is $90/wk. how on earth would you expect parents to pay you $400/week ($10/hr x 40 hrs/wk) because you are a babysitter and not a daycare???? That just makes no sense to me.
