It depends on your qualifications... I know creche staff babysit in family home 10e an hr, they get v little work. Often people do €10 an hr but limit it to a set rate say €40/50 but go home afterwards. Students are available much cheaper.
If your minding in the family home its minimum wage at least. €7.50 is illegal for that family to pay you.
If your in your home, approx. €5 an hr for an insured/registered childminder. Youv given a 50% sibling discount which is alot especially if your offering food.

Dipolma in childcare .
So do creche workers have to be employed if they babysit overnight .
Really depends on what the parents need in the event they need an overight in their home would they have to become employers ? I cant see many patents doing that .

Babysitting no but if say the night hours were a regular set part of the nannies duties/contract then yes. Revenue are very active in the whole nanny area and its the family ie the employer who´s fined and will need to up the hours worked to min wage/repay any social welfare that the cash nanny may have claimed. Its the reason very few families have nannies at the moment. Ten years ago huge percentage of families had cash nannies as same price as creche/childminder and so convenient. The risk of being caught, even reported by the cash nanny is too great today.
