03/10/2014 10:05 - How Much Should I Charge or Pay
Hi charge 5euro for one, 7 for siblings, dont take three. I do offer a daily rate if longer hrs than 5 or 6. I do offer a good weekly rate. Iv the prices in my head and easy to price here or on email/fb but it can be tricky on the phone, take your time and write down hours n calculate them...I dont offer food at all. I always have a price agreed before meeting up...dont be afraid to cut down any hagglers..personally I rule them out immed as they more than likely up for haggling in future...if u ogfer a good service be proud of wouldnt go into a hairdresser n haggle over price of a haircut...

Hi all,Just wondering what`s the standard rate per hour to mind a child in the childminders home. I sometimes feel that I am a little too soft when stating rates and end up charging too little. Keep in mind that I also provide meals and on previous jobs had to do 2 school runs also.
Any advice would be great.
