Hi could anyone enlighten me on the going rate per hour for a CM in Hertford? I know it varies but there must be someone on here that knows of any CM's in Hertford, please?! xx

according to google there was a similar thread in jan regards hertford cm's - if I find it I'll bump it for u

i think the going rate for most areas is £3.50 - £4 per hour, usually including meals. it all depends on the childminder as we are self employed.
if you are looking for a childminder if you log on to the CIS childrens informaton service for your area, they will have a list of all the local childminders.
where is hertford??

Hertford is in Hertfordshire... I know, that other thread was just ignored!! New face aroung town!! I am so unsure on the rate, guess i'll ring around a few and be cheeky and ask! Its going to be goodbye to nannying soon!!! I'm really looking forward to it! xx

kkey21 just looked on CIS and it looks like Hertford cm's charge anything between £3 and £5 ph. So take your pick. I suppose it all depends on how you rate yourself

whats cis. i put it into google and all sorts came up but nothing to do with cm.


Isyhan · 09/02/2006 15:19

i found out what cis is? needs updating can they list vacancies when not updated since november.


nikki83 · 09/02/2006 16:06

i believe the cis only update information when the person tells them to, they don not do it automatically.
