it would be 5 euro per hour how many hours will you be needed for.you could also mention half rate pay if any holidays are taken and half rate for any sick days.7 days is going to be hard work most only mind for 5 days.

Hi
Hoping someone could help. How much should I pay a relative to mind my baby in my own home for a seven hour day? I know there are varying rates and she is leaving it up to me to come up with a figure. I don´t want to insult her but I also can´t really afford a huge amount either so I really don´t know where to start.
Also, just as a side query - would I need to keep the fridge stocked etc, to provide lunch and snacks for her etc. I am hopeless at keeping food in the house and kind of buy as I go so is it expected to have food for her, apart from the obvious tea and biscuits etc that would be there anyway!!
Thanks :)

5euro an hr is in childminders house as minder potential to mix families etc...in your home your paying at least minimum wage, register as employer etc, its the most expensive form of childcare as exclusive n v convenient for you as a parent...id assume light food but I do read some nannies bringing packed lunch same as any other worker would..also consider light, heat, wifi etc being used all day...also ensure a clear contact as falling out with a relative could be devasting for all concerned...
