In kids own home, its minimum wage at least as youv to register as the employer of your nanny, issue a contract, payslips etc. Ring revenue they are very helpful. The rate will increase based on duties, her experience, qualifications etc. Check your house insurance re her cover and check her car insurance re your kids if car needed. If she´s looking cash you could find yourself in various tricky situations in the future, especially with revenue as its your responsibility to register.

Hi, I think it depends hugely on your area. I charge £5 per hour and can have 3 little ones as my own children are 7 and 5 and at school. Childminders care for children in the childminder’s own home best sale black friday . Throughout the year, they offer this service for the full working day or for different periods during the day. Parents and childminders negotiate their own terms (hours, rates, duties, etc.).

As mentioned by Minderofchild, if minder is working in your home they are deemed to be employed by you so you are responsible for registering with revenue. Wages should be at least minimum wage, although for 3 children I think you could expect to pay more than that.
