I charge $1 a minute per child the first time.
Double that the second time.
Termination the 3rd time.

As for $ covering only 9 hours of care, I would say "$XX covers up to 9 hours of care per day. Anything over 9 hours will be billed at $____ per ____ increment of time. "

Maybe start by saying "Thank you for choosing to do business with ABC Child Care!" instead?

I don't want mom to think that they can add another 1 1/4hrs for the same daily rate of $35 (which reminds me, I forgot to add that to this sheet lol), so I'm saying anything over 9 hours is $5 more. The thing is though I don't want them to drop off late and pick up at 5:15 either, so how do I word that. Also, anything after 5:15 is considered late. How much do you charge past that?
"Late drop off does not equate to late pick up. Each family is required to adhere to their contracted times unless arrangements have been made AND approved in advance"

Late pick up fees are stated above.
