'Includes Everything' - does that include Formula Milk? I would have thought that parents would always need to supply that themselves (or EBM).

HSMM Mon 08-Jun-09 12:37:25

We obviously can't provide expressed milk (well maybe some of us can!), but I will provide formula milk if a parent asks me to. It obviously has a limited shelf life, but that's just the way it is. I started providing everything, because you would be surprised how many people do not turn up with things their children need (nappies, milk, lunch, etc).

looneytune Mon 08-Jun-09 13:11:49

Yep, you'd be surprised. I've had one arrive with no shoes so had to go and buy some! grin

waytoomuchchocolate Mon 08-Jun-09 13:47:37

i'm a mum in london. i pay £7 per hour and absolutely everything and anything they do is included. this works for me as is so much quicker to get out of the door in the morning.

i found holiday charges varied the most - some parents i know pay their cm full rate for the child's holidays, AND full rate for the cm's 4 weeks holiday each year....i don't pay for cm's holiday and pay 50% for my dd's holiday days.
