Hi there, could someone please advise the best option, my infant will be 6 months old when I go back to work part time - I will require a childminder from 7 in the morning until 5 in the evening for these days what can I be expected to pay for this time.

Kind Regards
Lauren

Wow 50-60 per day for one child!!! I should to move. I´m in Laois and €35-€40 for one child is the going rate. The local crèche charges €32 per day for under 3 and they provide all food.

Its generally 5e an hr for one child in a registered/insured childminder. Personally the price of creche has no bearings on what a registered childminder charges. A parent in a quality childminder that is following ratios correctly is getting the small, if not individual environment and this is worth its weight in gold aswell as less bugs and tiredness.
Its being reported that new unregistered childminders are quoting 10e an hr but this is only applicable to nannies in the children´s own home.
Price around who´s available locally and see what they charging.

Ur child would not get the full on childcare in a creche.... People always want their children to have the best valuable care but are very rarely willing to pay even the goin rate....

There is definitely no comparison between individual childcare and a crèche. Obviously the going rate differs greatly from place to place.

If the creche is quality then the kids experiences is great. They get alot of activities/care within the grounds, that´s the only negative if quality. It is a busy environment but most kids adapt. Its the same if youv a poor quality childminder, no activities, children only out on school runs which is a crying shame and not experiencing the wider community etc. Parents make their own choices but iv found most will pay unless they entitled to a creche scheme then their choice is limited really no choice.

I think parents forget that childminders work very hard and also have mortgages and familues and bills and a qualified caring Guarda vetted reliable childminder is worth her weight in gold and deserves minimum wage. People would pay a 17 year old babysitter 50 quid easily and head off for an evening out. It´s so insulting to be honest. You get what you pay for and I´ve worked in plenty childcare settings and I´ve raised my own children. A 30 euro or so creche offering 10 hours care plus food for a day is government subsidised so they can afford such low fees. I would not accept less than 9 euros an hour.

I´m sure this lady can make up her own mind as to what is best for her child. This post seems to have gone completely off topic.

Just seems to be more emphasis on crèche vs childminder. I am a childminder and have been employed by the same family for over 6 years. Unfortunately the rates in my area seem very low in comparison to the earlier comments. I can´t help bur feel that is because parents have the option of the €32 per day crèche.

Rach, are you a childminder in your home or a nanny in kids home ie employed. I´m a childminder and never consider myself employed but rather parent can use my service if suits them and me. Unfortunately childminding rates do vary across the country as do creche prices.
Its registered childminders that have best rates and payment terms so if your not registered its something to consider plus the childminding grant is currently open.

Busybee no way will a childminder get minimum wage per child fulltime. It just isnt affordable to families and so they will look to other cheaper options. They can get a nanny and all her conveniences for both parents and children for minimum wage.
Majority of registered childminders have up to three preschoolers and possibly an afterschooler(s). The earning potential per hour comes from combining families meaning a good rate if busy. Plus savings on no childcare for their own children, no commute expenses etc.
