I pay £10 for 2 dc for 1hr 10 mins inc breakfast and drop off.

Depends. Are you a registered childminder?

AndKnowItsSeven Thu 16-Mar-17 23:03:05

I pay £5 for 7.30 to 8.55 including breakfast and school drop off. So £10 sounds about right.

Bloosh Thu 16-Mar-17 23:06:21

£10 for 3 hours? When I paid a cm it was £5 an hour and that was normal hours not a 6am start.

I'd go at least £15-20

user1469751309 Thu 16-Mar-17 23:07:19

Id say £15-20 as well

AndKnowItsSeven Thu 16-Mar-17 23:08:17

Yes I pay £5 for an hour an a half plusbrealfast and school drop off.

AndKnowItsSeven Thu 16-Mar-17 23:08:49

*plus breakfast.

I am using a nursery not a childminder.

My childminders hours start at 8am. For anything before that I would expect to pay a premium. 6am is bloody early especially when you consider they may not be finishing until 6/7/8pm.

I'm a registered childminder in Surrey. My hourly rate us £6 per hour. I charge time and a half before 8am. I would therefore charge £24.
What you charge is going to depend on lots of factors. Are you an Ofsted registered childminder with insurance, qualifications, first aid training etc? Where are you based?
Also, before you take this on, how many days a week is this? Bring ready for a child to arrive at 6am every day of the week will be very different from doing it one or two days a week. I've done early starts like this and they are not fun at all, particularly in winter. Also, is it term time only or will you be up and ready to start at 6am in the school holidays too?

6am is early. I have done temp work starting at that time in the past, would expect 12 gross per hour (as a nanny providing care in your home) these days but I probably would not do it at all as may be hard to find other work to fit with it.

Are you looking for a childminder? Thinking of being a childminder or are a childminder?

I would expect to pay normal hourly rate from 8am, but I would expect a premium for needing to drop off at 6am shock

So, depends what your normal hourly rate is, but I'd expect it to be time and a half for those unsocial hours.

Hiya lovelies thank you for your responses. Soon to be registered Childminder with all the relevant quals 😄

SianDowner Fri 17-Mar-17 09:18:52

I would look to offer this service term time only, with a view to offering a holiday club with similar drop off timings where needed ??????

Careful you don't burn out too soon, that's long hours you're proposing.

Doglikeafox Fri 17-Mar-17 11:55:42

If i didn't have other children at the same time, I would charge £20 for the very early drop off. I charge £10 for 7:30-8:45 with breakfast and drop off

thisgirlrides Fri 17-Mar-17 13:02:31

Having done very early starts in the past I wouldn't do it as I found the impact on my own family was too great for the minimal income generated by having just 1 child - possibly different if it's a sibling group or multiple enquiries for early starts and your own family are early risers. I charge £7.50 for 8-drop-off or £10 from 7:30am.

thisgirlrides Fri 17-Mar-17 13:05:32

ETA if I were to do it, I'd also charge £20 until normal start of 7:30 then standard rate £10 so total £30. It's got to be worth the inconvenience imo

Maryann1975 Fri 17-Mar-17 21:30:52

I am a cm and charge £4ph for before/after school, but for those hours it would be more. I think I would be asking for £20 (maybe more) a session, but I wouldn't really want to do it anyway. It's hard enough to start work at 8, (I hate getting out of bed), let alone two hours earlier. Don't underestimate how exhausting childcare is.
