Average €10 an hr for three siblings...I see youv another post up asking re baby, €5 an hr...Re teachers holiday it´s whatever your terms are, do u charge, don´t charge or charge a retainer.
However it´s illegal to mind four preschoolers without registering with Tusla, if your reported they will visit you and the fall out from that can be very upsetting from what I hear..if a child had accident or got sick etc you could or will be prosecuted as your breaking Irish law..you must register with tusla 28 days before minding fourth preschooler...you will be inspected and what´s needed is equivalent to creche standards...
Minding three kids that small is going to be a hard long day...also have you looked at insurance and registering to protect yourself but also the kids you mind. Taking payment for a service puts you responsible.

I would think 200 euro would be the fair price for both you and the parents

Great, it´s just not many are aware of that fact and Tusla are seen as active in regards to the regulations...best of luck
