Becareful if mum is a friend, iv never minded anyone I know or family. This way it´s very easy keep it professional with no upset.
Iv found people often looking for less than is required first, get a price and then slip in the extra hours, kids, requests etc. I avoid these types.

Yeah I think 200 is too much, doesn´t sit right with me. I think 160. Then I´m only charging an extra 30 for each extra child.

I charge €8.50 per hour - but that´s daytime, and would equal over €220
Maybe €150???
You´ll have them for 26 hours

I appreciate its 26 hours and antisocial but as your saying your looking for future work off this parent, perhaps it´s only me but alot of childminders mind one child for the full week for around the figure discussed. Will the children sleep? Are the parents working?

Is has now changed to 4 children, over night, a 26 hour period. Should I just double what I was charging for 2 ? Thanks for all the advice so far. It´s really been helpful.

Sounds a bit bizarre to have and pay two people to mind 5 kids, especially when one has to mind one on their own BUT that aside, I wouldn´t double the price!
Maybe add €25-€35 per kid (after the two initial kiddies) unless they involve night feeds etc

I think she has a babysitter for the oldest girl, so for now it´s just the four for me.

Because I know her I was offering to do the over night for 100e when it was just two . I think there will be two even younger ones now. One is a special needs child´s. Either way do you think 200e for all four for 26 hours is ok? She´s a person I know and like and would like to keep her as a friend and keep her business.
