Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

How would you view a 5% increase to your childcare bill?

I need to increase my rate from £40. I've been at this rate for over a year and was thinking of upping it to £42. That seems reasonable to me but it's 5%. What do you think?

Oh and I just wanted to reassure everyone that Tuesdays are my day off!

You could explain it to parents as it is, food is more expensive, the cost of energy bills has gone up a lot, if you use any petrol that has gone up too, any activity centres soft plays etc have all gone up. Bread has gone up. Your costs have gone up thorugh no fault of your own, if you explain this to parents in a letter to justify your cost I am sure they will understand.
