Hi, I am just wondering- do Childminders get paid if the kids they mind are off sick??? And do they get paid for Christmas holidays etc? Any advice would be great- thanks

once your available to work you should get paid.holiday pay is tricky you need to talk to parents and agreement needs to be made.

HI
Depends on whats in your contracts if have one or what you´ve agreed amongst yourselves. Generally if a child is off sick the minder is still available for work and should be paid. Holidays depends on your arrangement.
