Hi I am a mum of two and returning to work in July, I am just wondering what is the rate of pay for a childminder to mind two children in their own home, Cork city suburbs.

I am willing to pay 50euro a day from 8am to 5pm in the evening, do you think this is acceptable in our current economic environment.

Hi just saw your post, from reading posts on Rollercoaster I think that if you have a childminder coming to house that you become their employer and need to pay them minimum wage 8.65 an hour. You could check this with the Cork City Childcare Committee in Penrose Wharf or Childminding Ireland. It would probably be cheaper to have your children minded in the minders house. I hope this helps. Regards Mary
