I return to work later in the year. My friend (who has recently registered as a childminder) is going to be caring for my ds, who will be at pre school afternoons.
Is it usual to pay for the whole day? so the time I drop him in the morning until the time I collect in the afternoon.
Or only for hours used?
I am very keen to do the 'right' thing and am concious of the fact she is a friend and may want to save me money. But I want to be professional about it and make sure she gets what she would for any other child.

so are you taking your ds there before nursery and she is to take him and collect him later?, meaning you drop him off with her and collect him later from her?(sorry think i miss read first post)..if thats the case, then yes, she couldnt fill a gap off 2 1/2 hours whilst your ds is in nursery and has to make sure she is available to pick him up again..so yes, you need to pay from dropping him to collecting him.hth
