Hi everyone
I mind 4 kids in their home 7.30am-5.30pm
What would you charge for doing an over night too?
So 7.30am until the following day at 5.30 pm

Ages 2,4,6,8 and sleep 8.30-6.30am

Depends on your current day rate..if you just on min wage, up it per hr as four kids.
Personally as you work for them already and if they are a good employer, just babysit and let them pay you. Don´t risk it if they´re not, name your rate.

Well they´re hit and miss to be honest!
I´m on more than minimum wage. I´ve done the overnight already but then they never paid me they said to text them over the weekend with what I want to be paid.
I want to be fair but don´t want to say too little either

Do a flat rate, not mentioning per hr etc, judge what the night was worth yourself. If chance of more nights and you felt you like giving up a night at home, price right as saves having to say no/excuses as youv undercharged.
