Re crèche prices, just email/ring them and see if availability. 500 a month is very low for 12-6 five days a childminder will be more than that.
A childminder in Dublin will certainly be the 5euro an hr at least for a registered and insured childminder but from reading its seems unregistered also charge this as high demand. Calculate your hours, you´ll be charged for ecce if in dublin you require the morning drop and multiply by 5, add few euro for fuel, most charge extra for food if its supplied.

Hi all
We are currently living in Clare but are planning a move to Dublin after summer hols. We have an almost 4year old who us currently in his first of 2 years free ECCE year. We both work fulltime so Callum stays in the creche after montessori 5days a week and we pay 500euro p/month. Completely clueless of Dublin rates. We would need a similar childcare setup in Dublin..we are thinking of living in maybe tallaght or lucan. Can anybody advise price wise would we be better off going with a creche from 12(after preschool)-6 or a childminder in their own home? and some average prices would be great. childminder would obviously need to do a pickup from school.
Thanks in advance :)
