Program it as a cron job. See man cron.

For small kids, you might want to use a whitelist to control which sites they can visit. Another thing to consider is having the computer in a family area and not in their bedroom. If they don't have root access to the computer that they use, you could edit the /etc/security/access.conf. This can prevent them from logging in after a certain time. I haven't used this, so I don't know what happens if they logged in earlier.

Is their computer running Linux?

Does the gateway have squid running?

I see 4 choices:
  1. Get squid running on Fedora on the gateway.
  2. Switch the gateway to something like SmoothWall Express that installs a working squid -- you'll still have to master the ACL's.
  3. Take lazlow's advice & do it w/ a cron job.
  4. Do it w/in "Winders". (I don't even know if that's possible, let alone desirable.)
I suspect #3 is the best choice for you.
