-----------------------------------
I have been asked by parents of a little boy i previously minded when a baby/toddler to provide one hours pre-school care and max of 2 hours after school care for him. This will involve 2 school-runs to a school about 5 mins drive away from me. Just looking for advice as to what would be a fair amount to charge. I will be on standby if child gets sick but i will also have paid hols.(Teachers hols).This family have always treated me with great respect.Any advice/imput would be appreciated.

Why not stick with the €5 an hr...do you think its too much or too little?

They have just come back to me with an amount of 25 euro per day. I think that is fair as it works out at 5 euro per hour and 5 euro per schoolrun.
