Im not paying it i was looking for childminder and that was one quote I got. 9-4 on two days and 9-12 on the other day! These prices give decent ppl who do it for the genuine love of children a bad name

I look after two little boys three days a week from 8am until 6.30pm . I charge €70 per day includes all their meals and snacks for the day. It´s a two year old and 4 year old .... I think whoever quoted you that price will be looking a long time for someone to pay that amount! Where are you based?

It does seem very high. As a nanny for 2 kids I would have been paid 12euro per hour in the childrens home.

yes it does seem high.but if a minder is doing a fair bit of driving.drop ofs and pick ups.then.i would charge 12 euro.plus extra for daily petrol usage due to drop ofs pick ups.i know a few minders.who do a good bit of driving each day.i know 1 girl who charges 18 an hr 12 for the kids.and 6 a day for petrol.she does around 20 drop ofs pick ups and 1 after school activity on a friday.with the amount of driving she does its only right.
