You are definitely being underpaid, as the other poster said use this as an opportunity to get a contract in place @ 8 euro per hour for the 2

Just wondering if someone could help? I mind a child age two from 8.30 to 7.15 four to five days a week. I get €130 a week. I will be taking on their second child of six months soon for the same hours. I don´t know what to charge for two children in my own home.A little worried also as i never seem to get paid on time always days late or the next pay day.

not sure what rate is in your part of country.
wages ..... for this problem i give envelope on it i put ...
fees are now due
childs name and if it not on time i give a slip in childs bag saying
reminder fees are now due.
its a job treat it like that and let parents know your waiting on your money
contract childminders its the only way
good luck

Charge €5 an hour for one child, but you´v a long day so perhaps a daily rate would be more affordable for the parent. Some say €8 here for two kids but I do €7.
You are being underpaid in my opinion. Im in the country and got €30 a day for same age 9-4pm (they were always late in morning and early in evening).
now is your chance to draw up a contact with the family. Say youv taken a course and this is the way you were taught to plan meetings etc. Put in place the last evening worked for the week is pay day.

a parent wouldent like it if their boss said.we will pay you next week.i had that problem also.i had to chase them for my money.sometimes they took a friday of.last min thing 10 mins before i would be picking the child up from school. never got paid for the days they decided to take of.other times they sometimes got a grandparent in for a day.no pay for those days either.no pay for when they took a holiday.
not all parents are like that.most others i have worked for.have been brilliant.
