60 euro is very fair I think but if you are not happy look around and move on

Hi I´m a childminder and it would normally be €8 per hr for 2 children so €60 per day is a little bit high but since she doesn´t get paid for bank holidays or holidays I think €60 is fair enough

60 is very fair considering that you dont pay her bank holidays and holidays which other childminders get

Returning to work in December. I have a lovely child-minder who minded my child from approx. 9 until 3.30 four days a week at a rate of €35 a day. She will now be minding my 8 month old and my 3 year old, I provide all food and has asked for €60 a day. She also minds another boy 2 days a week and a little girl 1 or 2 days. I don´t pay for bh, sick days or holidays. Is this rate reasonable or is it a little high, hate speaking to child-minder about rates as don´t wanted to be bargaining with someone when it comes to my kids, however don´t want to be ripped off.

thats resonable..you dont pay for bh sick days christmas.most minders do get cover for those times.maybe.u should have a chat with her.she might reduce it.on the basis.that u pay for days of. bank holidays and cover for holidays.a lot of parents. would love to be in your position.

Hi
I think its a fair rate 60e a day, it does seem reasonable but if your not happy you should say it to her. Most childminders get paid for bh´s and sick days etc so your lucky on that one!

60 is fair as you do not paid holidays or bh.
if your children are happy and childminder is reliable its worth it in long run.

55 euro daily. 35 euro for the first. and 20 euro. for the second child.. 220 euro weekly petrol coverage should be covered also

I agree with both points mentioned: I always read posts and then decide my reply.
1) €60 does appear high however
2) no BH, days kids off etc
I childmind school term for a parent and she´s on a great deal as I dont get paid for the holidays. And there is alot of holidays when you add it up. I would def review my terms if I was asked again to childmind fulltime term time only.
