-----------------------------------
Hello, can anyone help guide me with what I should expect to pay for after school care. My children are 7 and 11, I would like my 7 y/o collected from school, my older child makes his own way home. The school is a stones throw from our home. I would like them minded in their own home, helped with homework etc.. During the academic year the hours would be 16 per week. And the summer it would be 8.30 to 5pm.
I currently pay €150 pw in minders home. From going through previous posts I think I´m paying too much. Thanks in advance.

in minders home its 8 euro an hour for 2 kids 130 a week. in your home its 10 euro an hour 160 a week.during the summer holidays .you would probably be charged around 80 maybe 100 euro a day in your house.you should negotiate a decent fee with a minder.
