Yeah I might suggest this to her as im keeping the space open for her and im not minding any other babies .shes very happy with my level of care and the child loves coming here so I dont think she would be happy to lose me its just I couldnt survive on only 2 days pay so she should really do something for me

Its a tough one, you ask for mother for extra payment but it might not go down well...would mum be aware of you needing the four days payment...have you priced the two children? Its light at the end of tunnel as youll have two children....the only thing iv from experience is never bank on any family...go with what suits you...families say onething now but months down the line mum could decide to get someone into house etc. Could you get another family in the meantime part time.

Its a fee to hold open your place for the child...you could agree to say one extra day pay so youd be getting three days pay...my feelings are parents dont fancy this idea and so take their chances in finding another minder..I mind term time and never charge for holidays as im just glad kids come back in sept..yes, teachers getting great deal etc
