Lee, I charge 7euro an hr for siblings, rural location, so id be at 35euro for before n after sch in your case..175 a week.
for full days id be at 65 a day...
I dont do any food in my rates....
immed ask for payrise...is it difficult to get kids in your area is the only thing if u need to be working...I like to be working but am constantly turning down work due to low rates offered.

Your def not overcharging...if 5 days I might have thought perhap you could move a little to keep them. Yes its great to have two days work but what do you do other three days! And food included. I hear all the mrs x cheaper etc but if you offer a good reliable service she ll be sorry.

( 5 year old dropped to school 8:30,collection at 1:20) didn´t know if the two 1/2 year old was to be attending Montessori or not! Please help! Am I over charging ?
