hi i am just inquiring how much someone should be paid for minding 3 school going children 3 days per week. i go to their house at 8am and get them up for school, make their breakfast, lunch for school and dress them. the bus picks them up at 9.15 so after i have tidied up after breakfast i leave at 9.30. i collect the youngest from school at 2pm. the school is a ten minute drive from their house. the other 2 kids come in off the bus at 3pm. i do their homework with them, make dinner and clean the house. the house is very big and everyday i have to clean it from top to bottom. i have to bring them to football training which is ten minute drive from house on two of the evenings. its an hour long and then i bring them home afterwards. on the third day i pick them up for school and bring them back to their house. im usually home by 8.
