Am I reading this correct, 2 hours in the morning, 4 in the afternoon, drop to school and pick up all for €20. If that´s correct I think you´re selling yourself short.

hi there, yes, I think your rates are fair. I would charge 8.00 per hour for 2 children.

I will be minding 2 babies (siblings) aged 1yr 6mths and 6mths for 9hours a day for 4 days a wk, do you think 70e is a fair price to charge per day? I quoted 55e but thought it would be a 7.5hour day but I think that´s too little for 9 hours. Plus parents are very well off.

Hiya,
You would want to be charging at least 5.00 per hour per child. If you underprice yourself it will be very hard to increase your price at a later stage.
Good luck.

Well I´m in a small village and trying to get started so I don´t want to price myself out of the market at this delicate stage
