Cool Charge For Overnight Care


I have been doing daycare for 2 yrs, and have never had this come up before, but a client of mine needs overnight care from 430p tonight until 5pm tomorrow, for her 2 yr old. I used to watch her FT for about a 1 1/2 at the rate of 125 per wk. They divorced and had to go to another provider due to the towns they live in, so for the past 6 months I have been doing it on a "as needed" basis only at the rate of $3 an hr, or $20 for the "day", due to the friendship this cliebt has now turned out to be. So now I am stuck as to what I should charge her. I know I would normaly charge her the $20 for wed, but what should I charge for 430pm today until tomorrow am?? she goes to bed at 8.

Can you give me your thoughts?

So the child is in your care for 24 hours??????

That would be like 2 days worth of care!!! Plus 3 meals 3 snacks.... Plus night duties of a 2.5 year old, that may not sleep through the night for ya.... I would charge $40 to $45 for the care!!

I charge $32 for a normal 9.5 hour shift day or night. So I would charge two shifts plus overtime at $4.00 per hour for a total of $90 for the 25.5 hours. Because she's a friend maybe just a double shift charge of $64. If they work afternoon shift they get shift premium usually.
