Hi I think that a nanny charges 9 or 10 euros per hour if she works part time. If you offer a full time job (Monday to Friday) I think that you ll be charged less than 9 euros per hour.

Well I guess it would come down to the minders qualification and experience but. Would have thought it would have to be cheaper than the crèche option!!

I live in inchicore and I´m currently on maternity leave I intend going back to work full time in September. I´m curious what childcare would cost me, I will need someone in my home Monday to Friday from 8.30 until 3.30ish, they will mainly have the baby (9 months) then local school pick up at 1.30, some days 2.30.
I see a lot of €10ph but that would be €1400pm surely a childminder is not that cost. Creche costs for me would be €875 for baby and €500 for school aftercare, that includes their food etc and the availability to leave them there until 6pm.. I would have thought a childminder in my home would have been cheaper than Creche ???

Having a nanny in your home is the most expensive form of childcare. Sometimes a childminder can work out more expensive than a creche...you need to weigh up the advantages of having your children minded exclusively in your home and whether you can justify the expense...

hi sabrina i don´t think a nanny in someones home would work full time for less money.you state 9/10 euro part time and 9 or less for full time.a nanny will stick with her chosen rate full or part time.if kids are minded in a childminders house. then yes the childminder may offer a holiday rate for during the holidays.
