Child care is a hot topic for most parents. One of the largest expenditures that a parent has to face is for child care. Child care expenses are rampantly growing and in some areas, eclipse expenses like rent or a house payment. But, the costs vary by age of the child; child care centers, the most frequent providers of child care, charge more for infants than they do for toddlers, as infants require more care than a toddler does. .

do you put your heat on or drive the children you mind cause 30euro is a very low rate less that 4euro an hour.
undervalue what you do and it can be demotivational to the minder.

It is none of your concern how I operate my childcare business or much my heating bill is or my much my petrol costs are.I have been in full time employment for the past 20 years so therefore I must be doing my job correctly.Childcare costs is a decision that both the parent and minder can decide between themselves.
IF ONLY you had more things to do in your day rather than pass comment on other peoples opinions.

Amazingly I have been quoted €8 per child (4 and 2yrs) that €16 per hour. My wife is in retail and doesn´t get this Before Tax!
Another qte €180 for 3x 8hr days, more like it but with the eldest in preschool till 1.30 and we have to pay for an extra 1.5hr at the school it till makes things expensive from now till end June.
I was thinking €40-50per day 3full days guaranteed and additional for any petrol costs would be reasonable. Your responses seem to concur with what we were thinking, thanks !

hi I am an experienced childminder for the past 20 years and I would say 30 euros a day would be perfect for minding a baby of this age.What extra food would be needed -some dinner of pureed veg-not overly expensive to make
