I agree with Cheerfulmom. If you have already decided to raise your rates then doing it that way leaves no room for a discussion or negotiation.

Just to add though, $10 to me seems a little high. Maybe in your area child care is higher? I'm in So CA and FT in my area runs for $160 a week for 50 hours which translates to $3.20 an hour. I do drop-in child care and those clients pay higher rates than anyone and I charge $5 an hour.

$10 an hour in my area is the starting salary for a young nanny and a baby sitter will run you about $7 an hour. I think it's great that you're able to charge that much for hourly care!
