Hi all.
Can anyone advise me on how much a parent would expect to pay for 2 children 8.30-5 for 4-5 days a week in childrens home? Light housekeeping, homework, dinners etc. School runs for one child while caring for the baby for a full day? Looking for a reasonable price that won´t scare parents off? Waterford area.

At leadt minimum wage as parents need to register with revenue as your employer...having a nanny or minder in childrens house most expensive form of childcare as soooo convenient for the working parent...

Hi I mind in my house so cant really offer any experience....but can guess what the market is like when parents come to me looking for cash price...the childcare market is a huge black economy that everyone in power afraid to mess with. If u want a proper paid job, keep looking. However from what I read its the family that get fined if revenue find out....
