Yes, a typical provider would earn over $7 per hour by claiming this snack. Let’s look at an example. If you claim a 16 cent snack for the entire year, the total reimbursement for one child is $41.60 ($.16/day x 5 days/week x 52 weeks.) If you care for four children, the total is $166 ($41.60 x 4 = $166). If it takes your five minutes a day to record these snacks, this will amount to 21.7 hours a year (5 minutes a day x 5 days per week x 52 weeks.) This means that you would earn $7.65 per hour for doing the paperwork ($166 divided by 21.7 hours). If you spend less than 5 minutes you will earn even more. Don’t throw away this opportunity to earn more for your time than your earn caring for children.
Is it worth claiming a snack for only 16 cents?
