My wife's mat leave runs out in a few months, so we're going to need daycare for our 1 yr old. My wife knows someone that has expressed interest in coming to our house to look after the baby. Times will be: 8-4 on Mon & Tue; 8-12 on Wed.
What is an appropriate hourly wage to offer? I like the idea of avoiding the hassle of dropping off/picking up our daughter at a different location, but I don't want to go broke, either.
I suppose that she'll have to claim what we pay as income if my wife is to claim the child care expenses as a deduction on her tax return.
