Just keep in mind not everyone gets paid extra for bank holidays, My husband is not paid anything extra for working over bank holidays he gets 4 hours off in lieu for working.

Hi could anyone help me, I mind a child on a flexi basis Mon to Friday. Every bank holiday I am asked if I am available to take child, which I do. Just wondering if I should be charging more than my standard rate for a bank holiday as I know both parents are working and getting paid double for it.

Getting four hours off at a later stage is at least something, its certainly at least minimum wage per hr by 4.....a childminder can be working for a low as €2/3 an hour depending on agreement in place and to have to work bank holidays for nothing extra can irritate if one starts to think about it at all.....
