Sorry never done weekends... think a few people do though... hope they come along soon! :D

Weekends are unsociable hours...some add £2/3 pounds to their hourly rate...so £5per hour would become £7/£8 ph & some double it..so £5ph would become £10ph....
the choice is yours!

Personally I wouldn’t work weekends either but I think you need to charge at least another 50 per cent on top of usual rate so £4.50 would be reasonable but it depends on how much you really want to do it.

Sorry I don't work weekends so can't really offer any advice.

Do you know of any other minders in the area who work weekends?

sorry, dont work w/ends but would probably add £2 on top of my normal fee.

I charge £7 an hour but as yet havent done any weekends xxx

I would check what others in the area are charging but I wouldn't want to do it for less than £4.50.

I know i could charge more than 50p extra each but it is 2 children from 1 family my hubby works Saturdays i have no dependant children so why not work it is only every other Saturday 8.00 - 12.45.
I would charge time and half if for 1 child

I worked weekends last year and i would never do it again, even if i charged triple time it still would not make up for the quality time i get to spend with my family.
