I'm thinking of childminding should i charge more for part time children?

I don't, but I know some childminders who charge for a minimum period per day e.g 4hours, even if child is only there for 3hours.
I don't know any childminders who charge more per hour for part-timers in my area.

No - but they do cause more problems...after the day I've had

Maybe offer a discount to F/T mindees..that might come accross better

I do.

I have a sliding scale of charges:- up to 20 hours, 21-30 hours
31-40 and 40+

Meals are included in fulltime, charged for all others.

I also have minimum charge of £25

Thanks for you messages.
I'm starting to think maybe i should just charge the same for whoever im minding that seems the fairest way - unless i go ahead with my idea of overnight care - in which case ill just do a set price per night and eve's will have to be more because its cutting in to my precious time with my dp plus my chill out time, but im sure that will be rare.
