Can I charge more for in-home daycare because of my background. By background I mean education and experience. I have been taking care of children since I was 12, and still a child myself. I have an AA in Early Childhood Education, BA in Psychology with a concentration in young children and adolescent studies, Early Childhood Credentials I and II, and I'm CPR and First Aid certified. I have 16 years of experience as a babysitter, nanny, or in a daycare center. Could I charge more weekly because of my experience, degrees, and certifications? I guess an even better question would be will people actually pay more because I have these degrees and certifications? I'm wondering when I start advertising what I could say that would make people realize that I'm worth what I'm asking for. I was planning on being a nanny but then decided that I might try watching a couple children from my home initially and then eventually get licensed so I can take care of more children.
