I charge by the hr if small number of hrs but parents will want a day rate for long hrs...I do 5euro an hr one child in my house, 7euro for 2 siblings per hr...i round down the day rate to nearest even number, so 8hr by 7 for two kids wud be 50..all food, nappies etc provided by parents....iv turned away work if rate parents asking for too low rate....stick with what you set....
