Well, for the one family I watch on Saturday, I do not charge any extra. It's part of their normal week and when they signed up, I didn't think to charge extra for it.

If I were to do it over again, I might consider charging an extra $10/day for the weekend care--BUT, and this is an important point here--I don't provide the "normal" care on Saturday. Saturday, I feel more like a baby-sitter or like dcb is part of my family. There's more junk food consumed, less structure, more TV. So, in some ways, I feel like I don't earn my pay as much on Saturday.
