How much to offer?

Anonymous

I had someone offer to watch my kids for free while I work once I find a job. She's friends with my parents (I usually hang out with them and their friends so I know her fairly well). She said she stays home all day during the week and doesn't do anything but keep her grandson 3-4 days a week so it'd be nice for him to have someone to play with on his days there and she wants to help me out as long as I drop them off to her. I want to offer to pay her something for doing it though. I just have no idea how much and also no idea how many hours or day it'd be yet


ETA: I plan on sending their food since they can be picky at times and my youngest is on a "weight-gain diet"

I get paid $20 a day for one of my nieces and $10 a day for my nephew.

At least enough to cover their food and snacks while they're there.

Yes, I was surprised too, she even offered to pick my oldest up from school if I needed her to. She can't but it was an incredibly generous offer, all of it is, especially since she lives about 25 minutes from the school. I'm planning on sending them with any meals/snacks since they can be a pain sometimes  and my youngest is on a "weight-gain diet"

How long? I'm aiming for school hours... I'm waiting on a call for a job that's from 7-215 they'd be there from 6:30-3:30 4 days a week IF I get this job, if not it'll roughly be the same hours at my back up plan job
