I currently work full time for a family with 3 boys. The boys are currently 5 months, 2.5 and 5. I've been with them 2 years and 5 months. I work M-F, 7am-5pm. I am not a live in nanny.
The boys schedule is like this:
Baby: with me, all week, all day.
2.5yr old: preschool M,W,F - 8:30am-12:30. Then with me 12:30-5. Naps 1pm - 4pm. T & Th: With me all day.
5yr old: Pre-K M-F. 8:30am-4:45ish when mom picks him up.
I get paid weekly. $631 gross/$510 net. San Diego, Ca. That will go up $100 a week when oldest starts K end of August as he'll be home at 2:30 every day. It's salary, no OT.
Where I need help is that the last week of August all 3 boys will be with me, M-F, all day. 50 hours. I don't know what to charge for that week. Help??
Then late September they want me to stay at the house from early Sat (7amish) to Monday afternoon while they travel to Vegas. Again, all 3 boys. The little sleeps through the night. Both older boys share a room and get up at 5:30am, go to bed around 7:30pm.
Mom offered $420 for the entire time. I countered with $550. My calculations were basically taking what my hourly would be, dividing my salary by 50 hours for 14 hours a day. Then 10 hours at $7.50 an hour for the over night part. She said they'd discuss it, and I have not heard back. Is that too much?
I LOVE this family, and the boys. And they treat me like family. Super nice extended family as well. I want to be fair to them, but it is a lot of work.
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions! :)
