M-TH, 630-830 AM. Get two children ready for school and take them to school. Clean up from all morning play and meals. Pack kids lunches. Start laundry with morning towels and pajamas in it. Load dishwasher and run.
M-TH 230-830 PM. Pick up each child from their school. Bring them home and provide snack, homework direction. Take each child to respective activities and/or arrange playdates as available. Go to library, museums, parks, etc. This is a NO TV family. Make *dinner for the children and eat dinner with the children at 7PM. Clean up after dinner, empty dishwasher from morning. Load dirty dishes. Direct the children to shower, get in pajamas, etc. Or go to park after dinner in spring/summer fall. If the children don't shower while I am there, I just leave out towels and clean pjs on their beds.
Friday:630-630. The same schedule, except one child gets out of school for a half day. They also asked if I would run 'geographically appropriate errands not less than one hour" on this day while the kids were in school. The only thing different with this day is that some Fridays I would have to pack the children for weekends away, but I think I have plenty of time to do what they asked and have some downtime before I pick up the child from school early.
*Meals are fresh fruits, vegetable with pre assembled Whole Food, Trader Joe's type meals.
They are paying an hourly rate on the books, coming to 40 hours. There would be some later nights, with advanced notice and overtime. I have never charged "overtime" before, so I am also curious about that. I think I am a shoo in for the job but I want to come back to them with a salary that is fair to both of us and reflects the immediate market.
