120 per day, you might as well adopt them though-12 hours so so long

Surely parents have to consider cost of minding 2 children for a 12 hour day, and decide if they can afford it or not, childcare is not cheap and certainly not for a 12 hour day.

I read the comment being meant its a very very long day for any childminder, youd need to be well paid to make it worth it...
personally 120 per day is 600euro a week..id love to know how parents would react to this, even afford it..
recently priced 2 kids, 7.15am to 6pm, parents at 40 a day as this what old childminder charged...I just couldnt match that, parents have since found someone who could...

Minder mum, I was looking for guidance on price and not for nasty remarks, your comment regarding adoption is hurtful and uncalled for.

Minderofchild, €40 p/day? That works out at €3.60 an hr.
The going rate for anyone I know is €10 per hour. I have several child minder friends who earn this. Huge expense for parents, but that´s the price of child care and still a lot cheaper than some of the crèches my friends have their kids in for less hours!
I used to be with an agency and the min they would get you would be €9.50 p/h guaranteed.

yeah but who is going to pay 600 a week.a daily rate should be put in place 70 or 80 in minders home. or 90 a day in parents home.it all depends on how much the parents can and cant afford

I got several quotes for my 1 yr old who will be starting crèche in December.
She will be there for 6months, 8-6 and it´s working out at €935 per week.
After that I´ll be looking for a suitable child minder. I´d have no issue paying the going rate. A lot cheaper than a crèche and your child has one on one care.
Obviously Childcare is very expensive and if I could afford to give up work I would! But I can´t. People often seem surprised at the going rates for childminders, but I don´t understand the surprise!
I have to say I´m shocked by the above person who was being offered €40 p/day for 11 hours.
