Could anyone please advise me on how much a childminder would charge for 2 children (one in playschool 3 mornings) for 2 full days (8-4) and a half day 8-1? Either in their home or mine? Would require them to drop off and collect child in playschool? Thanks v much- I´m lost!

From advice on this site and others, the going rate is €5 for one child, €8 for two children in the childminders home. In the childrens home I think its €7/8 for one child and €10 for two children. You would have to calculate the hours the childminder will have each child, whose home its in, does she incur petrol charges to drop/pick up from playschool etc. Hope this helps.

it would be 8 per hour in childminders home and 10 per hour in parents home and a petrol allowence for the school runs
