Default Babysitter / Daycare rates?

What is the going rate for watching one or two kids during the week? Interested in both daycare and in home care rates. Thanks!

I pay $50 for after school care and $75 a week during the summer and school vacations. This is the Boy's and Girl's Club in Powell.

I pay $110 a week for my son in preschool at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church daycare. I think babies and children who aren't potty-trained are a little more. I'm pretty sure that the rates on the website. Afterschool care was $50 but just went up last week to $60.

Charz--if you don't mind me asking, what are the hours-is it fulltime?

I am looking at something possibly for my youngest when my middle son starts Kindergarten this fall--hopefullyI will be pregnant by then but I would like him to have something for part time for interaction as if I AM pregnant by then I will most likely be on bedrest for the duration and we won't be able to attend all the activites we do now.

Wow, sorry to get off track--I am interested in costs around the area too

I know a lady who does it in her house and it's $10 an hour. I don't know if it changes per kid though. When she babysits at my house, I have 2 kids, it's also $10 an hour.

$400 to $500 a week for day care?

My son goes full-time. I don't know if they have part-time rates or not. I do know that they have a Mother's Day out program that is separate from the preschool. If you go to the website (Wallace Memorial Baptist Church Knoxville, TN Winning and Growing People), there is an email and phone number where you can ask questions. They also have afterschool care for k-5. Wallace Memorial is on Merchants Drive. If you drop in, the director will give you a tour and detailed information.
