Hi there
I am looking for advise please, I am going to be minding 2 children from 2 to 4.30 every day after school.
Does 10 euro and hour for 2 sound ok, so 25 euro a day for the 2 for 2 and a half hours? Also the mum asked for them to be given a snack. Would this be included in that price? I was going to ask for 125 a week but would 135 including snacks sound ok? I will be picking them up from school. Also how do I say that even if a child is sick etc that I need to be paid. She has told me it´s term time so I know I wouldnt be getting paid for summer but does this include Christmas holidays Easter etc?
Thanks in advance
