I am thinking about starting a home daycare.

If I am licensed for 12 children I would hire 2 employees (they would split 40hrs. 20hrs each) or If I am licensed for 6 I would hire 1 employee (work 20hrs). Each would be working with me daily.

What would be an appropriate wage to start these employee/s at? Should I base it on age of the person, experiences, education? I want it to be a far wage for the employee/s and myself.

I would definitely pay minimum wage (forgot to mention that).

Any thoughts?

Regardless of any education, experience or whatever, you legally have to pay at least minimum wage (don't forget your share of taxes & workers comp too). If you don't pay federal wages etc you can find yourself in trouble
