Thanks for your reply.i wouldn´t change throughout year but was just thinking ahead as it was loosely mentioned by father that their childminding costs would be less next year. I was thinking I could drop for school days by 7.25which is the extra hour and quarter the child is in school and then charge on school days off and holidays when child is full time with me as per going rates.does that sound fair?

I charge 50 euro per day for two children 8-6. One a baby and one in playschool.i don´t get paid extra when playschool is closed. Should I reduce my payment when older child goes to primary school.i won´t get any extra for minding her when school is closed for hols

Yes, your rate is too low in the first place so no dont reduce. I would take the opportunity when the agreed contact changes (so next September) and state your new terms and conditions (I would never change in the middle as your opening up a can of worms/looking unprofessional etc).
My feelings on a child going to playschool/school is a childminder should get paid (even lif only a token) if your on call if child needs to be collected for whatever reason, NOT if one starts work when child officially finishes playschool and some other family member can collect child if sick etc. A day off due to school closed etc can be pre-arranged and paid accordingly.

No, 50 euro for two children is very low in my opinion I would not reduce.
