WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE SOME OPINIONS,
I HAVE RECENTLY STARTED WITH A CHILDMINDER FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR MY 6MONTH OLD, I AM PAYING HER 10EURO AN HOUR. INITALLY WE HAD HOPED TO ONLY NEED HER ONCE OR TWICE A MONTH BUT OUR CIRCUMSTANCES HAVE CHANGED AND WE ARE GOING TO NEED HER MAYBE ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK.
BECAUSE OF THE RATE I AM UNDER HUGE PRESSURE TRYING TO GET OUT OF WORK EARLY ETC TO REDUCE COST AND IT JUST SEEMS RIDICULOUS, I DONE AN 8 HOUR DAY THE OTHER DAY AND PAID HER 80EURO, TO ME THAT SEEMS ALOT AND HARDLY WORTH MY TIME WORKING. I KNOW A CRECHE NEAR ME CHARGES 50 EURO A DAY FOR THE WHOLE DAY BUT I PREFERRED THE IDEA OF A CHILDMINDER I JUST DONT KNOW IF I CAN AFFORD IT AND MAY NEED TO LOOK AT A CRECH OR SHOULD I BRING IT UP WITH THE CHILDMINDER? ANY OPINIONS?

The ongoing rate is €5 per hour, you are being charged too much. I suggest you add a thread in the Childminding Section for more replies.
