45 to 50 a day should cover it.

Hi,

I have been at home for the past 10 years raring my 3 boys (twins 12 & 8 yr old). The twins start secondary school in sept and the third child is 2nd class finish @2.40 each day. I have been given the opportunity to go back to full time work and need weigh up whether be worth it. My 3 boys are my life and as twins hitting a crucial stage in life not sure if should hold off for another couple years.

My ideal solution is for someone to collect my youngest at 2.40 and mind in his own home and then if weather awful collect older two but they can walk home. The hours would be until 6.15pm but twice a week it would involve dropping all three to either football or swimming all in close proximity to house. Ideally I want them to have what they are used too someone to give them a snack after school and make sure they do their homework. I live in Newbridge, Co. Kildare area.

So if anyone could assist and make this decision a little easier and let me know cost wise what I am looking at or if you are a childminder and maybe this sounds perfect.

Thanks
