€5 an hr per child. Add extra for food, calculate how much this will cost you, over estimate it. Add extra for fuel. Do have insurance in place for minding kids and also if you need your car for school runs your policy needs adjusting or you are driving uninsured. Draw up a contract detailing when you are paid etc what happens if school closed etc.

Insured childminder.. Yes. Entitled to insist on it.
Cash arrangement...depends on parents, majority if not all parents will look for them free as assume a reduction as less working hours.
