Part-time rate $20/day
Hourly rate for school age $3.50/hr. & $100/wk. during vacations

I accept state daycare vouchers (that's my niche here - I'm the only family daycare provider in my city that accepts them)
I'll be starting a formal two-day per week preschool program in the fall.
I'm a bit more lenient on my rates than a lot of you are because attracting clients in this city is tough (and $ talks with most of them!). Our move here three years ago was an excellent move real estate-wise but a terrible move business-wise.

Parents provide all diapering & medical supplies & I provide 2 snacks and lunch for children over the age of 1. Parents of infants supply their own food & formula.
Parents pay 1/2 their usual fee when they take vacation time
I take 1 week unpaid vacation & 10 unpaid holidays & other various unpaid days during the year
Late pick up/early drop off fee of $5 for every 15 minutes
I don't charge a late fee if they forget their check but I do require that they deliver it by Friday evening.

I am on the higher end for Fees in my town.
I give them two weeks vacation and I take the major holidays paid but don't for my vacation, I also give them two sick days a month for their child, just so they don't bring them sick.
In our State, Wyoming, no one has their vacations paid, very few get professional or personal days paid.
Our infant slots are few and far between so I could probably charge what ever I want and I could get it, but I would feel really guilty if I did.
