Totally agree with monmon...
before n afterschool is different to full daycare where your on call if school simply cant plan your life n you nt get any extra pay.
if you afford to lose the family insist on full pay if they for instance already have a great deal with you or at least a retainer to hold space it 6 mths or the extended maternity. ?....

Hi girls thanks for ur replies, I am on call to pick up if kids are sick & I collect from school each day.. I think I will have to say it about a retainer fee or else say they will have to send them to me for a couple days each week while she´s off on maternity leave.. So wat would u guys charge for the baby when they start with me, is there a rough fee for 3 children, approx 7 & 1/2 hrs a day??

hi there generally there is no reduction for pre-school but there would be for primary unless you are on call to pick the child up if they are sick and you do drop off and pick up. with regards to maternity leave if only come across this once and what the parents did was send their dd to me for 3 days a week as I told them I could not hold a place open for them.

Hi just wondered if any minders out there adjust their fees when the child/children start in pre-school or primary school?? Also what about if a parent goes on maternity leave, would you ask for a retainer fee or full pay etc???
