How much?

I've been asked to pick up a four year old from a local nursery at 11.30, take him home and give him lunch then drop off at another nursery in the next town at 1 pm. Works out 6 hours a week as only Tues-Fri.

I'm a new(ish) nanny and unsure how much to charge? I'm based in Fife, not really a high demand area for nannies. My last temp position was £7 per hour

Any suggestions welcome.

Would you be on call - if the child was sick at nursery - will you be caring for him during the holidays etc

Sorry for the delay!

No I don't think I will be on call or required for hols but could you give me a rough idea for on call and hols and not on call?

Thanks for your reply!

How will that fit around other jobs you have (now, or in the future)? Do you really only want to be working 6 or so hours per week (remember to include your time getting to/from collection/drop off points)?

If you go ahead with this, then I would suggest that you charge a minimum of 2 hours, or even 3 hours - whatever is most viable to you. £7-£10 gross per hour.
