How much to charge for child care?

I keep a 3 year old and a 2 year old in thier home for $60 a day. The hours right now are from 7:30 till 5. In august I am going to have them 6:30 till 8 or 8:30. How much extra should I charge I only have them 3 days a week. Just trying to get an idea of what I should ask for before she asks me. Also when they go on vacation which this week they did and again next month they do not pay me anything. So how much should I charge in August when the hours change? (the hours will only be like that for 6 weeks)

  • well if you work out your hourly rate is around $6.30, so if you charged that it would be around $72.45 a day with the extra 2 hrs, but that does make it a long work day 11.5 hrs so you could probably charge a few extra dollars on that....
