-----------------------------------
Can anyone advise what is the normal procedure for a childminder who is minding children on an afterschool basis and is then required to have children for full day on mid-term and holidays. I have heard that as creches do not charge extra that the norm is for Childminders to follow suit. If I do charge extra what would be the normal Rate?

You def should be charging extra. Your not a charity. Even if you charge half rate. How many kids do you mind? You need to say it sooner rather than later.
