Look for a nursery with longer hours. Most private nurseries offer extended days and it is far less hassle than using two different sets of childcare for one child in one day.
At one point we had one in nursery and two in different schools - one school offered extended hours care (after school and or breakfast club) but the other school didn't so we used a child minder for wrap around.
I'm all about simplifying as far as possible. Despite having three kids in multiple settings - that was as simplified as it was possible to be at that point!
Yeah, no school nursery or preschool for DS - he's staying at private nursery until school - they have a foundation stage classroom and do all the same things but are open 7.30-6 and as I'm dropping DD in the baby room anyway it makes it simpler. Plus they do before and after school care with pick up and drop off so it offers continuity for his school years.
I try to avoid doing nursery collections as it is more hassle than it's worth, but if I did do it I would also charge my full day rate. Most childminders in my area are the same. There is enough demand around that we can afford to be a bit choosy and most prefer to take children that attend for the whole day. The only way to know though is to call local childminders as everyone is different.
Seems like I am the lucky one here. I take my DD to the childminder for 7:30, CM takes to pre-school for 8:45 (charges to 9am for the drive home). Collects DD at 12:00 (charges from 11:45 driving time). Each drive also incurs a £2 petrol charge. As long as the total hours over the week are over 30 (they are) she charges £5 ph.
This arrangement means I can use my free subsidised 15 hours with the pre-school. The CM would not want these 15 hours as my LA will not pay £5 for them.
On average CM will work out at £37pd and pre-school is £4.05
I gave a two hour discount for a three hour nursery session. So for a nine hour day, say 8-5, I charged for 7 hours. I didn't mind having a quieter morning session at the time. Parents round here would not pay for a full day if the child is at nursery for three hours in the morning.
