I am small daycare and I have hired a high school to help out this summer for 2 hour a days so we can go to the pool, etc. I have 7 kids total age ranging from 3 months old to 7 years. How much a week should I pay her and her sister to help me?

I would at least pay them minimum wage...or better, actually.

This is not an easy job, especially if you are requiring them to have water skills and the ability to deal with young ones in the water.

I'd say that at the very least, you should be offering them each $10/hour. Or, alternatively, call the other care centers in your area and find out what the going rate for summer temporary employees is.
