also are you charging by the day or by the hour? Are you expected to know CPR, First Aid, and other emergency procedures? Will you be asked to transport them places? What are the times of day they are coming? Usually before 7 a.m. and after 6 p.m. are higher charges unless it is sleeping hours. What part of the world/country are you in? Closer to a big city it isn't uncommon to charge $15 an hour for 1 child of school age. In my area I paid $250 per week for my 6 year old to attend summer daycare. He was provided with meals and snacks but no transportation or "extras" like swim lessons or spanish class. Those fees were extra each week. Before and after school care during the rest of the year runs about $125 per week for the hours of 7 a.m.-8:30a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

that depends on numerous things.
How long are you watching them/are they being watched?
Are you watching them at home or there home?
Is the food being supplied for them or are you supplying the food?
