Currently you are on 3.84 per child per hour, which if your an insured childminder would be too low. The difficulty now is parents will expect a drop in rate they pay. Do you supply food and is car needed in the €50. What do you mean by drop home, if you drop home extra charge there also. Draw up a new contract and see where parents at.

Maybe my original post wasnt clear enough I actually get €5 from 9-12 (15€) for the youngest then it goes to €7 from 12-5 (35€) totalling €50 for the day. Just wondering should I still charge €7 per hour when I´ve both in Sept from 1.30 to be picked up from school kept at mine and dropped to there home at 5

But 7€ for two is only €3.50 per child per hour which would be very low. If youv any costs at all in minding the two your actually making very little. The sibling discount youv given is too much. However if your happy with the €3.50 per child after school than that´s fine, parents should have no problem paying it as they currently pay that. Dropping the kids home would be a luxury to any parent and would require an extra fee.

I pay €10 for my two kids, my son will be going to pre school in Sept so my childminder will only have my daughter most of the time. She only minds them part time 2 days a week mornings only. I will still continue to pay €10 as I´m expected childminder to collect my son from school & also if he´s sick or cannot go to school for another reason I expect her to take him. I think you should charge €35 per day.
