Its normally €8 an hour for two siblings, some do €7 even. I personally shy away from three or more children as its becomes unaffordable for parents and your often doubling your workload for no extra money.
I feel you should charge if you are on standby for a child not in your care. However to a point as you could price yourself out of the job, depending on your area.

Hi I have had a couple of enquiries for siblings , I am in Dublin and charge 5 euros an hour including food and activities (toddler groups etc)

Scenario one is for two toddlers full day say 8-530
Scenario two is baby and one at preschool again 8-530

Both four days a week

Do people charge while one is at preschool I would have to drop off and pick up and hold space for the holidays, plus I couldn´t fill the two hours with
If I discount too much it won´t be worth taking siblings I guess but it has to be affordable for the parents but it is still two children to mind and feed and no less work! Thanks for advice
