I charge double time for any hours before 8am and after 6pm

I'm a fool then. I usually charge £3.50 per hour 8-6 but £4 outside these hours. Hate starting at 6.45am, never thought to double fee

Looney, I'm the same, I only charge 50p an hour extra too. Have thought about charging double as I hate the unsociable hours bit.

I charge time and a half for unsociable hours, but it depends on the child! I have one mindee that stays overnight sometimes, and then I just charge mum the same rate, but through the night as well. The only time she gets time and a half is on a weekend.

I "officially" work between 7.30am - 6.00pm. On the occasions that I've worked before or after these hours, I've charged the same rate.
