Hi! I recently advertised for help on Craig's List. The position was in Bergen County, NJ. I require someone mature with their own car M-F to come to my home by 6:30 AM, get my 2 kids dressed and ready for school and drive them about 5 miles to their school. I was thinking it would take about 2 hours a day total adding up to 10 hours per week. I got many responses, the cheapest rate offered being $125.00 per week. This seemed outrageously high to me! As I have never hired outside help before can anyone advise me if I am right and current childcare providers are grossly overcharging or is this really the going rate for childcare now? Thanks.
