I just charged hourly fee of £4.50 an hour but in future I would always charge a fixed rate as it really wasn't worth the stress of school in with three Los for £4.50. After school is a min a two hours fee charged now

I was charging only £3.20 an hour and this included a snack and dinner if they stayed. However, from my experience, and it might just be the children I have, it is very stressful. In one case £8.00 which you can take off £1.50 for food is a total of £6.50 for 2.5 hours work in my opinion is just not enough!!!!! I am now charging any new children £4.00 an hour which to be honest still isn't enough but all the other childminders in my area charge £3.20 or £3.50. I am now the most expensive in my area.
