You would need to charge her a minimum daily price or you could really lose out. I think you should work out what is fair to you and charge that. I think I would have to charge from when they arrived in the morning until they left in the afternoon. You never know she might decide to keep the child with you all day.

Until you meet her you're not really sure what's in her mind - really if she needs the space available all day then that is what she should pay for. If you explain the reasons why you charge all day then she might decide to keep lo with you all the time anyway.

TBH I don't think I would want this - it would be very unsettling for a child to come to you for a couple of hours, then to grandad for a few more and then back to you again.
