Hi,

Just wondering what is a fair rate to pay a minder to collect my 8 year old daughter from school at 2.15pm and mind her until 5.30/6pm for three days a week in my home?

Thanks,

Fiona.

Assuming it´s in minders home bout €50 per week depending on how far the drive to the school is!

18 euro per day would be a fair rate, based on 5 euro per hour going rate. 30 Euro a week, would be insulting in all honesty. You are asking a minder to look after your child for over three hours a day. At 50 euros a week which is 10 euro a day that works out at three euro an hour. No one could/would work for that. ! In fairness if you were to put yourself in their postition would you work for that. Also , if little ones are in from school they will want snacks which adds to your costs.

I would charge 50 euro for these hours. Best of luck
