Hi, If baby is being dropped by you and collected then I would think 40 euro per day. I have paid 50euro per day for same age from 8.30 to 5.00. Dont think you would get a good childminder for less.
Hope this helps

Hi there, I would love to have parents paying us €40 or €50 in these times, but it isnt the case. With so much competition in the childcare industry, and so many people minding children (although many are un-registered with the HSE) it has become very difficult to keep the fees at the price they were 5 years ago. I would have been charging €40 back in 2006 but over the last 18 months, i have dropped our fees to €35, and even that is the highest in my town (Thurles). I cannot afford to drop my fees any further, however i have started to provide FREE Nappies, Wipes, Creams, etc. rather then reduce the fees any further. We are currently Full, and have a waiting list for Babies. Our facility is a very high standard, and is highly recommended..... So you can get affordable childcare for less these days..... Best of Lcuk ;)
