Childminder rates during holidays

09/02/2015 20:13 - How Much Should I Charge or Pay
Hi there,

I´m new to here and also becoming a new mum in May!

Now I know it´s early to be sussing this out but I work as an SNA in a school so my hours are from 9 to 3, I´m wondering what would the childminding rates be in Wexford for these hours five days a weeks.

I´m also wondering what would be the story with school holidays, we wouldn´t necessarily need the childminder at these times, would we still need to pay or what would happen??

Your help and advice would be greatly appreciated!

€5 an hr, room for discount as five days...
be honest with cms you see and ask if they do term time only, some will as own kids so love having free holidays..other wont n charge retainer, say 50percent and others wont take on term time only as they need a full week wage every week...
