    Default Drop off playgroup

    My high school did similar for our child care subject. Parents left their toddlers with us students for 1 hour and they paid $2 a session. It was 1 on 1.
    I probably wouldn't pay $40 for that, not even $20 I don't think. Especially if the carers aren't qualified. Though it's not something I'd make use of, to be honest.

    Yeah it sounds like very expensive occasional care to me. Our local neighbourhood house does occasional care for $18 for 3 hours. With 3 qualified staff. With more structured activities I'd either want to stay and participate, or expect a really professional service, eg dance instructors teaching dance.

    There is a council run per school not far from me that charges $35 a day. There is no way I'd pay $40 for two hours care. You'd need fully qualified careers, insurance etc as PPs have pointed out. Sorry but it sounds a bit dodgy.

    Sorry. It says a lot about a business.

    How *****y. She wasn't advertising, she was starting a bubhub thread asking for opinions..

    Sorry OP, I also wouldn't use a service like this. It's too expensive compared to childcare. My kids go to daycare all day for $35 a day.

    Default Re: Drop off playgroup

    Sorry but another no here! I currently pay $40 for 5 hours at occasional care (which is basically what you describe) and I consider that the max I would pay for5 hours, no way I would pay effectively double.
    I really don't see how it would be viable tbh, insurance alone would be costly even if you already held all the checks and qualifications you needed.
