-----------------------------------
Every childminder will have their own terms but having yourself prepared is a great idea. I dont charge for bank hols, even though could be a normal day worked. I dont charge holiday either but this is down to rural west of ireland location. I would get the same weekly pay every week if fulltime or fulltime parttime as iv available to work. If I request a day off, then no pay.
Id be looking for 65 a day so prob do 3 days for 180, in my house.

-----------------------------------
I´d really appreciate some advice on the correct rate of pay for two pre-schoolers being minded 3 days a week from 8.30am until 6pm. From September my eldest is in Montessori from 9am until 12am on those working days.
As I work a Tuesday, Wed, Thurs, do I have to pay for Bank hols? Also please advice on holiday pay, sick days etc? What´s the general rule. I want to be fair but I have to be practical in terms of what I can afford!
All advice really appreciated.
Thanks
