Wow... lucky childminder...I know some childminders in the West would be out of business if they were looking for 40 euro for 7 hrs work or 50 euro for 10 hrs. Shes lucky with 2 weeks pay too... not all chilminders get holiday pay unless prearranged and written into their contracts.

yes 40 is the rate and 55 on holidays.two weeks holidays is also fair.
fair pay mean the childminder stays with you and thats very good for your
child.its about the children being happy and not going from billy to jack in my view.
best wishes

Hi all,

I pay my childminder 40 euros per day to mind my 4 years old little boy She has been minding him for over 3 years now but She minds him part-time as
he goes to Montessori from 9am to 12am , that´s 1 hour in the morning ( from 8 to 9am )and also minds him from 12 to 6pm. His crèche is a couple of minutes walk from her house. I pay 50euros if he does not go to Montessori and when is on holidays. I don´t pay BH, sick days . We pay 2 weeks holiday a year
I provide all the meals, snacks, milk, bread, wipes etc... everything really.
Am I paying her enough ?
thanks a millions for advising
