I know the chance is very small. But I was wondering if there are any childminders on here from Twickenham. Can you tell me what the usual proce is for 2 kids, full time? Or even any parents who use a childminder in Twickenham?

I've looked on the childcarelink website and no one seems to give their rates.

I am looking for a childminder around east sheen area for end of Jan 2010..I basically need someone between 5 to 10 days a month .I work for airline industry so would not be the same days every month.I can let you know a month n advance though what days i would need.
A roster example would be a block of 5 consecutive days at the beginning of the month (8am- 5pm) and another block of 5 days at the end of the month.
I will pay £50 / day
Give me a call on 07969897796 if you are interested and we could have a chat.
thank you!

This thread is 3 years old! I think you should post a new one asking for general advice on those hours being compatible with a local childminder.

I think you are going to struggle, to be honest. Childminders will generally have spaces available on certain days and can only accommodate changes if they aren't already full on the others. So may or may not be able to accommodate your changing days.

In East Sheen I think you are looking at about £7 per hour for one child. For a 9 hour day, that is £63, not £50. And that doesn't even bring into the equation the inconvenience for wanking hours that change at a month's notice.

You might find someone who is willing to be flexible, but I think you will have to pay more.

OMG, I'm so sorry. That was meant to say ..."wanting hours that change at a month's notice"

wanting, not wanking... WANTING
