How are child care costs calcutated if the custodial parent has a license for in-home day care?

Asked about 2 years ago - Seattle, WA

Added cost to father's child support of $850/month but children were not enrolled in formal daycare for past 5 years. Mother had "in home daycare" and watched 2-3 other children. How would court calcutate if father is seeking reimburments on paid child care cost not actually incurred.
