23/08/2017 20:18 - How Much Should I Charge or Pay (Locality: Roscommon)
-----------------------------------
Hi,
I´m just wondering if anyone can help with my query. I´m returning to work soon. How much should I expect to pay my childminder (unregistered; only minding my children) to mind my 3 children in her home, 5 days per week from 8.45am-4.00pm? Children´s ages: 6 months, 1.5years, 3 years. 3 year old will be in preschool 5 days from 9.30am-12.30pm. Drop off and collection from preschool required.
Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me!

Is she an experienced childminder or first time? Is she using her car for school runs?

I´d say €80 a day is the going rate, a little more if qualified. It is reasonable to expect not to pay for school holidays unless children go. Also you should pay when the children are sick and don´t go if it should be a regular week.
