One of the biggest expenditures that a father or mother has to face is for child care. Child care costs are rampantly growing and in some areas, eclipse costs like rent or a house payment.

i am a childminder for the past 20 years.
childminders in their own home are self employed.
childminders who earn over 15,000 per year must reg.with revenue under the self assessment taxation system.
the parents work and pay tax and i feel the minder should too.
so i charge 5 euro per hour for a child.
kind regards

My understanding is that you want the children minded in your home, if this is correct then you become an employer and you are liable for min wage, holidays.prsi,usc etc. If you mean the minders home then you are prob looking at 5 euro per hour for the fulltime child and then perhaps 3 or 3.50 euro for the 2nd.

I am not sure how to reply to your post because you don´t say what the crazy rates are so its difficult to advise about them. As I said in another post, in my area in south Dublin, the average rate is 5 euro an hour or 40 euro a day, with a half rate for a second child. As to being registered, and putting the money through the books, i dont think this is necessarily a guarantee of good, loving care. I am a childminder, as are most of my friends, some of them are reistered, some are not, and I don´t see any difference in the quality of care offered. Of course its an advantage if they have training, are first aid certified and have garda clearance, (all of which i have) but I personally think that a kind loving nature and lots of experience with children are the main requirements for a good childminder. Childminders are not legally required to notify their local authority unless they mind 3 or more children, therefore anyone minding only your 2 children would not be obliged to notify anyway. Registering to pay tax is a different matter though, anyone earning money is legally obliged to notify the tax office, but it is worth mentioning that childminders can earn up to 15,000 euro a year tax free, as long as they are registered. As the rates of pay are so low, I don´t think you can expect to get an unregistered childminder for very much cheaper than a registered one, especially if they are experienced, they are not likely to work for less than a fiver an hour. Its up to you to decide what you are looking for in a childminder, and if you want one who is notified and registered, you will find there are plenty out there. good luck with your search.

Hi all, I would like some answers on what should be paid to a childminder for minding a 2yr old and a 5 month old from their own home. I have had some crazy prices sent to me. Where in the world some people are getting the prices i don´t know. I totally understand if someone is fully qualified and has all the extras with garda clearance first aid etc. Have seen alot of people on this saying what price per hour they want. My question is, is this through the books?? I can put my life on it most of them are not. Don´t get me wrong, want the best loving and caring person for my kids and to know their in safe hands while i´m working. My 2yr old is in creche 6hrs a wk too. Please leave me some comments and opinions....thanks.

Obviously I am not aware of how others manage their finances but personally speaking I can assure you I declare all my earnings and pay tax and PRSI. I have spent many years gaining my high qualifications and vast experience. Although you are not in my locality if it helps I charge 180 euros per child full time for a full week and there is a discount for a sibling and obviously if the sibling is not full time then part time rates apply. The hours would need to be clarified before a final figure established. If you are interested in what qualifications and experience warrants this fee then my post is under Dublin West.
