I have been offered the opportunity to be the back up/emergency childcare for a family with 2 young children ages Kindergarten and 2nd grade. This would be on an as needed basis for snow days, or other unplanned, unschedule emergencies so the parents can go to work when their kids don't have school. I am a stay at home Mom to three kids of my own ages 3, 6, and 9 so if there's a snow day, I am home any way. Only problem, they asked what I would charge and I don't have a clue! Obviously I want to make it beneficial to them and not charge so much it would be more economical for them to skip a day's work, but I'd like to make it economical for me to to bring a little extra money in once and a while! WHat do you guys think? BTW I'm in New Jersey.
