Hi there,

What way do childminders usually work for children of teachers who only want care during term time only?

I have minded a teachers child and never asked for payment over school holidays.
Have kids myself so really suited to be off/not minding when mine had school holidays.

I childmind term time, both families I have as teachers only pay for term time only. Purely because any mention of holiday pay, bank hols etc I never hear back from the family n question. I live in a small rural area so Im delighted to have the work term time and even more delighted not to have to work full time during the school hols...
Some childminders demand a retainer fee say 50%, suppose it depends how in demand you are and can you without the money during the hoilidays.
