Is she insured? She should only have three preschoolers at any one time on a permanent basis ie kids not in national school (unless she tusla registered so five Preschoolers). Majority cmers charge for playschool hours.
Average rates for insured environment is €5 for one and €8 when two (as you Dublin it can be as high as €9.50 and even €10 if no sibling discount allowed). Many childminders will charge extra per hour as it´s only four days a week. Fuel and food extra,,,
Do check proof of insurance and it´s date as its common for childminders say I´m cover on house insurance but they´ve not informed company so ones kids are not in an insured environment. Same as car, a domestic policy does not cover anyone in event of an accident.
