Hi
Would appreciate opinions from other childminders on whether you reduce fees for your mindees when they start full time playschool (9.30-12.30), and another child that is in school from 9am - 2.30? The parents have approached this with me, so I just want to see what the norm is. I mind 2 children, one of whom will be doing the full time playschool year, and the other is in primary school until 2.30.
At present I am being paid a set daily rate, 4 weeks hols and bank hols.
Located in North Dublin. Thanks.

I would take something off but small amount,You still need to hold a place open for the child.Parents should understand this....Hope it helps
