For me, both for 3euro, depends on your area, demand n supply of childcare n what parents can afford or are willing to pay...

I charge 35 for babies, 30 for preschoolers and 25 for school going. Registered, insured, fully qualified and Garda vetted. For 3 siblings I would discount and the daily rate 8-5 pm would be 80 per day. Hope this helps.

I don´t entertain those who disrespect my profession and rates. I understand some parents can´t afford what I´m asking but I feel I charge fairly and if they can´t afford the rate so be it. I give quality care and go above and beyond with the children in my care. I have my overheads and taxes to pay and can´t compete with the black market but luckily the parents who I work with understand and respect the quality of care I provide.

You are right to charge those rates.At the end of the day it is a full time job.People do not understand we have fuel costs,heating,esb and taxes and insurance.So you are asking a fair rate

I have 4 other mothers around me, unqualified, not paying taxes, uninsured etc and all charging same as me...such is life but god forbid an accident happens...I have peace of mind at the end of my day and happy that I can contribute to my country. I feel it´s important to teach my children this.
