Is that the going rate there??? think I might move. Even the city centre nursaries don't charge that. Could be to do with crappy area I live in lol.
I should put my rates up, I have 2 level 4 qualifictions in early years, don't even charge 3:50per hour

£5 an hour is £50 a day, more expensive than the nurseries round here by a bit and they include all meals. But worth it for a good childminder.

Hoping you still have spaces in a years time wink would you do before/after school care?

Lol, I was going to put my fees up before the stupid recession but stoped providing an evening meal instead. I still provide dinner, snacks and drinks, yummy healthy ones I might add which is why it helped my bank balence to stop the evening meals (a little anyway). Still I think in april I will put my fees up to £4 an hour £20 for a morning or afternoon and £35 per day. £165 a week. I work from 7am till 5:50pm most days and never take time off sick.

I live in Manchester and its not the posh part lol.
I would pay £5 an hour for my kids if I knew they were being given fab care and given loads of stuff to do (I have also cut down on expensive trip and replaced them with trips to nature reserves and big parks that have farms on them. I have gone all outdoorsy, The zoo was good (no extra fee) the airport pub was amazing. walking round the local nature reserve in the rain was so much fun (we were all in water proofs, my zebra wellies are great). I have loved the holidays, feeling tired now though, roll on school
