I get €8 an hr. €5 is not enough if they are expecting you to do homework and feed them too.

hi there most minders i know would charge 5 euro.so 8 hrs a day would be 40 euro.thats not bad.to be honest theres not many parents that would pay 8 euro an hr for 1 child.8 hrs would be 64 euro a day 5 days a week thats 320 euro a week.i wouldent dream of charging anywhere near that for 1 child.i dont charge for food or homework.the only way i would charge extra is if i have to use my car for drop of and pick ups and that would be 50 cent extra an hr.that would bring it up to 5.50 an hr.

Hi all,

I am looking for someone to bring my son to school in the morning and collect him from school and mind him until I finish work. It would be in total minding him 5 h a day, Monday & Tuesday. But only 2H on Wednesday and 3H on Friday. How much should I pay?

Thanks
