I charge the same for 4 or 5 days. I just call it full time (4-5 days)

I am on the otherside of this.. I charge a flat rate of $250.00 a week. they can come one day or five days. I think that it would only be fair since it is a shorter week and don't have the option to come on fridays, that you should drop the rate. I would only drop it by $25.00 from what you have it at now.

I used to live right up the street from you in Newport Beach and I know that you could get that amount for a 4 day no problem...

I agree with PP. Drop your rate by $25.

I heard of a daycare doing this a few years ago and I was like what? 4 days? but it is out there and it WORKS.
