Hi there, My child is on mid term break this week. How much would I need to pay the child minder per day for minding my daughter at child minders home. Child is 7 years old. Timings would be 9 am to 5.30 pm. It would be great if you can give me the charge for both qualified an unqualified child minder. Thanks in advance!

Its average 5e an hour for one child, but for this you should definely look for an insured minder for safety of your child. Youv no come back in event of an accident and so you´ll be footing medical bills etc yourself. I would also look at first aid, vital in a childminding situation, especially where your handing over good money for a service. For 50euro a day I´d expect your child to have had an activity packed day.
Look on your county childcare committe and childminding Ireland websites for registered and insured childminders in your area or ask this childminder for a letter off her house insurance, its free or 155euro if through Childminding Ireland.

My child minder is not registered and not insured as well

Thanks a lot for your response. This should help me to choose child minder during Christmas holidays.

Thanks minder of child for your response. I agreed to pay 50 Euro per day. I am new to this place and do not have an idea on the fair rate. So would want to know the nominal rate that child minders charge in Dublin.
