Hi there,
Normally you are paid more when minding children in their own home, as it is an exclusive service that you are providing, and also doing extra work, eg. cooking and cleaning. Ten hours a day is a long day, which is 50 hours a week.
If minding 2 children for those hours in your own home you would charge minimum of 60 euro per day, 300 euro per week. In the children´s home, with housekeeping duties too, I would say minimum 70 euro per day, 350 euro per week.
I hope this helps.
