What is the average price to hire a baby-sitter for two children per hour in Lawrence?

"For a baby-sitter, it's probably somewhere between $2 and $2.50 an hour for each child, so for two children it would be $4 to $5 an hour," said Lisa Zwiener, a program assistant with the Douglas County Child Development Assn.

Depending on a child's age, care at a licensed home or center costs, on average, between $112 and $176 per pre-kindergarten child per week. Day care centers charge more than home-based providers.
