    Default Free 15 hours childcare

    I have been asked by a parent about 15 hours free childcare. I am not accredited so I can not provide free childcare. I want to be helpful and say if the parents want to seek free childcare to go ahead. What do other childminders do in this situation? Do I still charge the parents for that child's place with me? I shall be left out of pocket if I do not charge the parents. Their child has 9 hours a day childcare, 5 days a week with me. I can't see that filling a day and a half with someone else will be that easy. Really need help on this as they are entitled to free childcare come January.

    loads of people do charge for the time they are there if they drop and pick up.

    i just offered charge 1h out of the 3h session for my travelling.

    it's difficult but understand that parent can get care for free it's hard for them not to get anything out of it.

    not having been in the situation yet and when i will i'll have the sibling so kind of sibling rate thing ... i hate making money decision
