Hi i was wondering if my current childcare bill of 300 a week to my chilminder should come down any bit if both kids (5; 7) are in school? They are with her from 8am to 6pm and she does the drop offs and pick ups for me. She isnt a registered childminder. We have been paying that set amount every week for two years and i had assumed that eventually our weekly bill would come down some bit when they were both going to school.

I am now in a position to do the drop off myself so i could offer just after school hours during school term. If i did this, how much would i expect to pay her?

I would imagine 40 a day is enough for after school as it´s probably 2 till 6,but whatever you feel comfortable with.
