How much should I charge an hour for 2 pre-school siblings for 5 days in my own home 8-6.30 pm, I was charging €8 but have been told this too much?? I had thought €5 for one child and €3 for the other was ok?

I charge 7 for two siblings in nappies....however parent brings all nappies, wipes, creams and food.snacks.drinks required. I dont charge any holidays days, bank hols etc. Bit much of parent to argue over 1euro but if full time, 5 days a week then she wud expect some reduction.
Iv turned away work if parent makes any fuss over money at the start. Set your own rate and stick to it. Having two siblings is much tougher than one child...you lose alot of your freedom, for not much extra money.

Looking at your hours, 10.5 hrs at 8euro an hour, parent is looking at 84 a day x 5 is alot of money. Has parent said what she willing to pay for the week.

well you could try 7 euro (350 euro weekly)if she is a nice woman theres no point in argueing over 50 cent.some people are giving 110 for minding 2 kids 30 hours a week.and have also been turned into the cook and house keeper.so you havent got a bad deal really.
