-----------------------------------
Just wondering if minders are charging more during the school holidays or are they just keeping the price the same as during the school term, even though you may have the children for more hours in the day.
Thanks

It depends on your contract and what youv informed parents before they started.
Personally I´d prefer term time rate and holiday rate so based on number of hours worked. Some work it out by dividing by number of weeks into total hours by X amount meaning parent pay same every week. There has been cases of parents suddenly finishing up meaning the minder is down money based on hours.
