Hi I am in the process of becoming a registered childminder, I was wondering if anybody knew what the average prices for Sept 2009 are. I would like to know the daily fees for 8-6 under and over 2s. I live in West London.

Thank you in advance grin

Have a look on your local childcarelink.gov page where all the childminders are registered and advertise their prices.

Hi I have just looked on there and I can't see anything. Thanks for your help.

I used to live in SW London and charged approx £7 ph - but only had one child plus one of my own to look after. If you have several children, you may have to go cheaper (but not much - you're worth it!) I've never charged a different rate for different ages though - is that common practice?

Well as I've seen alot of people out of London are charging more for under 2s. Thank you NannyMcphee for your reply.

Dunno about per hour, but mine charges £45 a day (8-6) for under 2s in SW London which I believe is average.

And there's a discount for full-timers: £200 per week. Guess you'd charge a bit more in West London, depending how posh your area is.

In Herts as part of the registration process, you have to do a feasibility study, showing that you have researched the area you are in, the average fees, and whether you will be able to sustain your business.

You may have to look at a lot of c/m's details on the FIS as not all put there fee scale on their details, as they are often individual to each family and contract.
