Rate varies depending on are you insured, experience, qualifications, garda vetted, current first aid, registered etc. Are you any of these?

Parents are appreciating the insurance in last few years so if you´d insurance (car and to mind) its €5 an hr per child, you could offer a daily rate with little discount if wished. Childminders with huge demand (city/large towns) would charge 50e alone for baby per day regardless of hours needed as the baby taking up a space. On other hand an uninsured childminder might be only getting 50e for your example. If your using your car/feeding the kids the rate per hour is reduced worse never mind the risk of running a service uninsured in your home or worse out on the road with domestic car insurance so actually uninsured when minded children in the car.

I offered 4 euro an hour per child. That way when kids of school it easier to work out a full rate pay then instead of offering a daily rate and then trying to add more on if any child of school or out sick is this ok

Aslong as your happy and have looked at your expenses than your rate is your rate. Was there any reaction from parents? I prefer a daily set rate as calculating by the hour you´ll find some parents think if drop late/collect early they´ll save. Plus it also means if one sibling off they know rate the same. Make sure they understand when theyv to pay, nb do u get paid if suddenly family member around to take the children etc. Some if not all insured childminders get paid five days even if days not used, whether set no of days agreed at contract stage or after....best get it all agreed before they start...
