How much should I charge for child care?

I am curious how much I should charge my friend for watching her daughter.

I did not volunteer, she asked me to watch her and stated "you can earn some extra cash"

I will be having her daughter who is 2 1/2 years old Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday from 6:15 am to 7:45 am. I will get her dressed for school and feed her breaskfast.

I am taking her to her preschool at 7:45 am.

It is only a couple of hours for 4 days a week.

What would you charge?

  • $10 a week sounds good.You only have her for an hour and a half a day.

  • $100 a week if you like her, 130 a week if you don't.

  • If you like her I would charge 50 a week plus like five or ten for gas
    If you don't like her then I would charge about 75.

  • I did the same thing for some one I know. I charged $20 a day. It really depends how far the preschool is from your house.
