atworknotworking Wed 19-Aug-09 20:35:23

is it the DM taking the piss out of underpaid and overworked cm's

FabBakerGirlIsBack Wed 19-Aug-09 20:37:44

I am not humouring you, allgonebellyup.hmm I am curious as to whether what you are paying is the norm as I had heard it was more like £2.75-£4.50 an hour.

<Appreciates the hug more than TR will ever know after my day>

I feel sorry for agbu as it sounds like her cm has really taken her for a mug and I was interested to know if anyone else is fleecing charging as much as agbu's cm is.

I wish, is that in surrey then?

BrieVanDerKamp Wed 19-Aug-09 22:09:06

I wish, I am CM and have never heard of anyone getting that much!!

Where do you live allgonebellyup?

Must be London - as in Surrey/Berkshire border area it isn't that high.

BrieVanDerKamp Thu 20-Aug-09 09:17:34

No I'm in surrey, not that much here

chandellina Thu 20-Aug-09 09:22:09

the most expensive i've seen in London is £60/day or £6/hour. I paid £35/day for a childminder in central London (Waterloo).

sexisoneofthefoundation Thu 20-Aug-09 09:23:35

Mine charges 6 pounds an hour but it is in London and in an area where there more parents in need of cm than cm in need of mindees.

gingernutlover Thu 20-Aug-09 10:20:32

going rate round here seems to be £3.75-£5 per hour

I am in West Kent

alibubbles Thu 20-Aug-09 10:46:57

My new minders are charging £6.25 and I do know of one who charges £7. West Herts

damn caps sorry!

Fufulina Thu 20-Aug-09 18:43:35

Well - deep breath - I'm in London, and I'll be paying £9 an hour. The CM is just having my daughter and her son (3 weeks age difference) - so is more like a nanny really. It works out at £1 an hour more than the cheapest nursery in the area. That covers everything - food, nappies, days out, etc.
