Default Talk Me through This Schedule Change and Possible Rate Change

I signed a family on this spring with the understanding that they would be full time 5 days a week. Now dcm is switching jobs and only needs 4 days a week. She is not willing to send dck 5 days. My contract is a daily rate for 4-5 days, but I've been switching my new enrollees to a flat weekly rate for 4-5 days so that if they go from a scheduled 5 days a week to 4,i don't have to lower my income. This family is not on the new contract so their weekly rate would drop from $150/week to $120. Is it fair for me to tell her that she can switch to 4 days, but rate will stay the same even if the current contract doesn't say that? Or do I need to lower that rate? How would you handle it? I want to be fair, but I also signed her on because I thought she would be 5 days a week.
