    Default weekend, evening and bank holiday rates

    Hi all

    I'm new to childminding and my first clients are both doctors at the local hospital so work shifts. I may occassionally do weekends, evenings and bank holidays for them. What do you think would be a reasonable rate to ask for given that the standard rate here is £5 ph?

    Anything outside of my core hours of 7.30 - 6.30 I would charge double rate but if you feel that's too much how about time and a half? I wouldn't do it for any less as if/when you get busy it might get a bit much to do these hours on top of a full working week?

    Weekdays and Saturdays I charge time and a half outside of my core hours, Sundays would be double time if I chose to work them (not been asked to and would have to seriously think about it as I need time with my own kiddlywinks)

    I would charge time and a half for weekdays and Saturdays but double for Bank holidays and Sundays. I would imagine they will be paid extra for unsocial hours.
