I charge £4 per hour, but its worth making it easy and charging £10 per session, which is what i'm going to do next time.

I would have charged the same, but i know other CM's who would charge more because they are taking up a full time after school place, I charge £8 from 3pm-6pm

For after school i charge £12 per session - the session is from 3pm - 6pm and the charge stays the same wheter the child is here 1 hour or 3 hours. Its not worth my while otherwise.

i charge £10 for after schoolers and £3 per hour as that is the going rate in my area.
