Well it depends what the rates are in your state/county. I live in California/Santa Clara county and the rates are pretty high. However if she's already your client I would give a little discount. I had that happened to me once, so I charged her an additional $40/per child. She pays a flat rate of $300/week for 2 children ages 2 and 4.

So it really depends on you, but you want to consider the length of time with you, age of child, how many hours, what time will they be picked up the next day, etc.

Hope that helps

Is this a one-time event or on a regular basis?

If it's a one-time event I would charge $50.
Regular and consistent basis I would charge $30.

How old are they? Would you have them for dinner time? Bath? Do they sleep through the night? Breakfast & Lunch the following day?

I have not done this in a long time.
When I did the children were 2yrs. and up.
I charged my regular hourly rate.
