Its 5euro an hr and I dont do any food....personally 30 too low for me as its a 7oclock start and 8 hr day..ud be up at 6.30ish....if 5 days i would do a discount...if only few days id be at the 40...
However if mum at 30, you have to consider if you ask for more, she may go elsewhere...
have a clear contact on finishing time, if 3 latest then 3 it is...also do you get paid when ur not needed, bank hols, etc

Never believe any parent that tells you what the creche is charging...I now just ignore that point as iv heard it many times before...some days here I offer one to one care so thats priceless in my opinion...im in a position where I can turn down any haggling etc but others unfortunately cant...if you feel its bad money before you even start how will you feel when your on the job..
If cm for a weekly wage, only way is to combine families, each paying their share...minimum wage only applies to a nanny in the child/ren home...

That´s what I was thinking, the crèches are funded by the gov as well as parents paying money, I think in this day and age €30 even €40 is way too cheap, it´s sitting under a baby and ur very grounded with a child life isn´t so carefree

As far as I know I´ll have the little girl from 7.15 to about 3 latest, I´m saying €40 but the mom is saying €30 as the creche in her area is charging €30 too, it sounds like such bad money when it´s a huge responsibility

I doubt any creche owners would agree with the gov funding, yes if ECCE or employment schemes parents on...some creche owners barely taking a wage...big chains etc are different...
A cm has to be affordability also or else youll have no work...do update how you fare as might spur cm to increase prices lol...
