Hi there,

I am looking for some advice as to how much I should charge for minding 3 children all under the age of 6? One child is in national school, one in playschool and the other is a baby. They would be in my care in my home outside of school & playschool hours and I would be responsible for the dropping off & collecting at both schools, meals etc. I am new to "Official" childminding, although I am a mum myself, but I am unsure as to whether there is a standard rate per hour for one child, then 2 children & then 3 children or how do I calculate this? Thanks for your help.
