have to agree some parents may say its outrageous that food is not offered in the price.but some kids could be picky eaters and wont eat what is offered.the childminder then has to buy what that child eats. the child eats it this week then decides next week he/she dosent like it.then there is the ones who will eat you out of house and home.i dont think any childminder should be expected to feed fussy kids.

its around 10 euro per hour in your home.i would rethink the food part as that could become quite expensive for you. you could end up maing different meals due to picky eaters

Calculate €8 for two small ones per hr n add €2 for afterschooler per hr...as iv said before I don´t offer any food as this will eat into your payment, if you feel you need to offer food add cost of it discreetly to the rate and just say rate is x which includes food and school collections... Iv had parents say it outrageous I don´t offer food but no good giving a price n then giving it back again on food costs...
