hi there yes 5 euro is the normal rate.most childminders charge 5 for the first child.if you are finding it difficult you could negotiate.

Thanks. Yes I think I will see how we get on for the first few months. Maybe I could negotiate the food part of the deal.
Thanks!

Hi there,

I was referred to a lovely lady who minds kids in her own home. She quoted me 5 euro per hour. I work 8am to 4.30om in Dublin so with commuting it would be 7.20 to 5.20pm. I have to provide everything such as food nappies etc. Works out roughly 50 euro per day.
Is this the going rate? With my wages I can only afford three days a week as if I did 5 days childcare I wouldn´t have anything left at the end of the week.
Any comments are welcome.
Thanks!

if the baby is on solid food i dont see the harm in asking if she would provide food.
