for an 8 hour day, I charge $25 a day. any longer, its an extra $5 an hour. If they are late, and no call, then its $15 an hour (never happens to me, but its out there)
weekends are $35 an hour. That is my free time, and if they want a sitter, i'll do it, but its that much, and they have to be ok with me taking their child out in my car- i provide proof of insurance, and have a paper stating my clear driving record. PLUS I have extra new carseats for children still in them.
If the child eats something special, or has allergies, the parent has to bring the special food. I will tell them what we are eating that week, and if they are not ok with it, then they need to provide the extra.
The money I make pays for supplies
ie: milk, books, crayons, play-doh, paper to print stuff off on, and anything extra we might need. Also to update CPR classes.
