Sorry if this has been covered endlessly, I don't usually visit this section of MN.
My DD is starting nursery in Sept and her CM has just given me a change of hours form. She will be picking up DD from nursery 2 days a week at 11.45am and taking care of her until 5pm. She is charging her normal rate for those hours but also charging 50% from 9am to 11.45am.
I've limited experience of CMs as she's been my only one. Is this standard practice?
Same here. Full fees whilst they're at nursery . In my case it's on;ly 3 hours out of an 11 hour day and I drop off / pick up. But in the circs. in the OP I'd still charge full. You've got a good deal.
I pay my CM full fee for the 3hrs that my DS is at nursery. (She doesn't charge a pick up/drop off charge). Personally doesn't bother me as I am no worse of as obviously nursery is free, also means she is available for INSET days etc if needed.
I feel devastated. I do not charge anything while toddler does her 3 hours at nursery daily and I am left hanging around. My working hours have been cut a third and I am there mainly for drops and pick ups, of her sister too.
I am seriously thinking of quitting. I find very hard asking for money, and they have not offered it (well, yes, more hours babysitting for them, which is not the schedule I am looking for).
