It depends a lot on where you live in CA. I charge $50/drop in and my normal rate is $40/day. That is pretty much the going rate for home daycare in my area.

I only do an hourly drop-in rate for 1 child. I charge $6.00/hour. My normal hourly rate is around $3. I do not live in CA.

I think you are getting a great deal!

Especially in Cali.

I've heard rates there are astronomical.

My daily rate breaks down to about $30 per day and if I had a drop in, I would charge them $40-45 per day with a maximum of 8.5 hours per day.
