I have an almost 4 year old girl and my friend wants me to watch her 3 1/2 year old boy and 1 year old girl in my home while she goes to school. I don't know how much to charge. It will be hourly and I will provide all meals while they are with me in addition to taking them anywhere I go (though I will prob do mostly free things like the library, the mall play area or the park). Her and her husband don't have a lot of money so I don't want to ask too much but on the other hand I need to do something while I am at home to help with our bills.

I thinking charging hourly when you have a daycare is tricky, because you'll be cheated out of money. If lets say they don't come for a week, or only for half day also someone can complain that you didn't time it right. I would do a flat rate. I have a daycare and have had one for 6yrs. If this is something you want as a business then I would sell myself short but if your just helping friends out then I would see what first is comfortable with you then see if your friend can match that.
