Hi everyone, I´m new to the site. I am going back to work and have my children going to crèche which opens at 8am. School opens at 9.10 ( country school!) and bell rings at 9.20 ) I need to be at work at 7.45 and can finish at 3.45 but can also need to stay back til 5 also and start as early as 7.30 and it takes me 20 mins to get from work to school. I have 3 children and one of my little men was born with Down syndrome so he needs a little extra help dressing etc and has at least one appointment in ennis or limerick a week during working hours. My older son finishes homework club at 4pm but could also just go straight to ´after school´ instead 0and be there til 6pm. Crèche and school are within 5/10omin walking distance.
I plan to still keep them attending crèche and after school with the possible exception f the older one who does homework club.

I think I need someone to call to my house at 7.20am or 7.30am finish dressing the children, give them breakfast and possibly leave kitchen tidy etc so I need help 7.30am to 9.30amapprox. I might also need help with pickup 4-5/5.30 say if I´m working late and the older child stays going to homework club. Additionally there is typically a pm appointment (3pm) for 1hour not inc travel to and from...

So my question is : am I looking at this the right way? Gave I worked out correctly what I need and. What kind of rates/ charges should I reasonably expect to pay ?? Many thanks for reading ! Maeve
