Hoping someone can advise.
What would a childminder charge to mind 3 kids in childminders own home - full time.
The oldest will be starting primary in Sept. My 2nd will be starting preschool in Jan. Both will need to be collected.

Am i under or over calling it at 80€ a day (8€ x 10 hours)

If your looking at paying 400 a week to a childminder... For three kids your most cost effective and level of comfort would be to hire a nanny in your home. Kids can sleep on etc.
Price around and see who´s available. Its generally €10 an hr or bit more for three kids in an insured childminder, there be no reduction for playschool generally but drop down 1.50 or 2€ while your eldest in school. Ask weekly rate as depending on your area some might like convenience of having just one family.
