You should be getting at least 50 euro per day. 8 per hour for when you have the two kids and 5 per hour when you have the preschooler.This does not even include food or petrol so she would be getting a good deal @ 50 euro per day.There will be no job satisfaction if you are underpaid.

Your charging too little.
Do as previous poster said calculate the hourly rate (however I charge €7 for 2 kids), add your fuel costs and dont forget the hassle of school runs, it all adds up.

It´s still 10 euro per hour in the child´s home even for one child.The minder might give you a daily rate.It would be cheaper for you to get the child minded in the minders house as this is 5 euro per hour.

Hiya,
I would charge an hourly rate when you have the children. I would charge 8.00 per hour for the hours that you have both together, and 5.00 for when you only have one child., depending how far you have to travel to drop to school, i would add on something for this,.
Hope this helps.

I´d be charging
€8.50 per hour
So €8.50 per hour
X 5.5 hours
X 3 days
------------/
€140.25
Plus a fuel surcharge (small, maybe €4-€5 per day)
I´m registered, vetted, insured, first aid etc

Im a bit confused as i see people saying to charge 10e/hour if the childminder is minding children in the childrens home. What would you charge for a 1 year old for 4 days a week (about 27hours) in the childs home??
