Some childminders charge by the day and not the week if they have a few other kids . It would also depend on wheather they are insured or not! I would think 30euro a day is fine to offer. Other people in cities would pay more, while more a bit out in the country would pay less. You also have to consider if you are bringing the child to them or they are coming to you.

Depends on where you live really as they will want whatever going rate is for area I pay 130 for three days, 7:15am-4:30pm Bit more than a lot of other wollies I think and she is not registered or anything, but care is fab, days are flexible, early starts no problem and she adores my LO who is thriving in her care. Enough said!
