Hi there. Does this sound reasonable for After school. Collect from school and mind for 2 hours 5 days per week. 2 children 100 euro which is 5 per hour per child. Any advice Welcome. Family friend minding, not registered child minder. If they can´t do it how much to registered child minder please? Thanks.

Is the family friend minding kids already? I only ask as its very hard to ask a person to be caught around for two hours every day after school time for only 20e. Having 100% reliable childcare is paramount, alot of family/friends arrangements you need immediate backup.
If the family friend has never minded kids before the rate expectations are often much greater than the registered childminder as they are combining families making their day rate. Tread carefully before suggesting a rate, indeed I´d advise asking them what they think first so youv time to think.
