    I will admit that I have called other providers to get prices. But it was not to undercut them - it was so that I could make sure I wasn't too cheap! I did not want to be the lowest priced!

    We're in W. Michigan and our rates are flat for all ages....

    FT (5 days a week) $35 a day
    PT (1-4 days a week) $40 a day
    Before/After School $10 a day

    We do offer sibling discounts. Parents pay for holidays that fall on normal contracted days. Parents also pay if the kids are sick. They do get 1 week of vacation a year at no charge providing they give at least 2 weeks notice.

    That is funny!!! If it is "price fixing" then should't it be illegal for all companies that offer the same services to talk about pricing? I like to know and keep informed so that I can offer a fair price for my services. I'm not the cheapest and I'm not the most expensive in my area but I charge a fair price for what I offer and the only way that I would know that was if I asked other provider's in my area what they charged. DUH!

    I'm in Ohio. I charge $20/day for full-time care. I do not offer a discount for multiple children. I do not have a part-time rate in place as I do not have any part-timers. I plan to change my rates in the fall, likely to $22/day.

    Drop-In (hourly) $5 an hour.

    Full-time has a max of 50 hours a week and part-time has a max of 30 hours a week. All three have a time cap of no more than 10 hours a day. I don't charge by the day but I did calculate it in there so you can see how much an hour I charge.
