                             Caregivers  Income Examples

Scenario #1


1 infant @ $35/day (6 -18 months)                     $35 

2 toddlers @ $31/day (18 months – 3)                $62
1 preschooler @ 30 (over 3 yrs)                          $30
                                            Total:  $127 per day x 5 days = $635 per week

$115 – groceries, $45 liability insurance, $25 supplies (crafts materials) = $185 (expenses)

Total income – expenses or $635 - $185 = $450 per week



Scenario #2


2 toddlers @ $31 per day                                           $62 x 5 days = $310
1 toddler @ $31 (4 days)                                            $31 x 4 days = $124
2 afterschool @ $14 per day                                      $28 x 5 days = $140
                                                                                 Total:               = $574 per week

$115 groceries, $45 liability insurance, $20 supplies = $185 (expenses)

Total Income – Expenses or $574 - $185 = $389 per week




Scenario #3


1 infant @ $35 per day x 4 days                                             $140
1 toddler @ $31 per day x 3 days                                           $93
1 toddler @ 31 per day x 2 days (opposite of above)            $62
1 toddler @ $31 per day x 5 days                                           $155
Preschooler @ $30 x 3 days                                                  $90
1 afterschool @ $14 x 4 days                                                 $ 56
                                                                       Total:  =  $596 per week


$115 groceries, $45 liability insurance, $20 supplies = $185 (expenses)


Total Income – Expenses or $596 - $185  = $411 per week






Ratios

To meet safety standards established by the Fire Marshalls Office, the Dept. of Education and Early Childhood Development has the following Regulation regarding ratios:

A caregiver can care for 7 children of mixed age groups. This includes their own under the age of 13 if they are on the premises. Of the seven, no more than 3 can be under age 3; and no more than 2 of the 3 can be infants (under 18 months).



Rates

Caregivers can charge between $34-$38 (infants), $30-$34 (toddlers), & $30-$33 (preschoolers)

FAMILY HOME CHILD CARE SOCIETY

Subsidy is available for low to middle income families (a family has to be making more than $70,000 before they do not qualify for subsidy). Subsidy means that parents do not pay full fee for their space; how much subsidy they receive depends on their income. Visit https://www.ednet.ns.ca/earlyyears/families/application.shtmlto find out more.
