well my normal rate is £2.75 per hour with £2 per day for food/ activities etc
so im going to charge that but 4 hours per day is minimum. any extra hours are charged on top but no less than 4hrs per day.
holidays are going to be, if the parent thinks they will def use 3 days a week but occasionally need more and i have the space then i will take them but charge for the extra days obviously but if they only use 2 days they will still be charged for 3 days as they are "booked" and unavailable to anyone else.
does that make sense? i need to add this to my policies as at the moment it only really staes what happens will ft/ pt pre school children

yes basically your saying all places are subject to full pay wether they wish to use them or not and any extra hours are avaialable but need to be discussed first!
is that £2 extra each day?? so £4.75 all in all??..ie on top of hourly rate for food?
i take mindee to free or cheap(50p) playgroups but told mum if she wants me to continue taking her to soft play, she would have to cover it as its £1.75 and she was happy with this!

ok thanks people!
so i think im gonna charge £4.75 p/h for after schoolers,i charge £4 at mo for f/p timers but it will be going up in jan to £4.25. so i think an extra 50p an hour is fair?
apart from anything else the mindee who i shall be doing it for will only be with me an hour and half 4 days a week!!

£2.50/hour including food - cheap here eh?! ( even cheaper if I mind younger sibling, then only £2/hour!) However I charge a retainer during school hols. -e.g. for one mindee that I have for 3 school days (before and after), I charge a £10/week retainer during the holidays for weeks when I am available.
