What do I charge for childcare?

I am available to work Monday - Friday from 7.30am - 6pm. During these hours I charge an hourly rate of £4.50 (minimum of 5 hours per day).  Hours will be rounded up to the nearest half hour.  For example, if you want four and a quarter hours of childcare then you'll be charged for five hours.  If you need me to look after your child outside of these hours then please contact me to discuss your requirements.

I offer both part and full time childcare and can be flexible to meet the needs of the child and their parents/carers. This fee includes snacks and meals. You are welcome to provide foodfor your child if you prefer.I do not charge extra for activities and local outings. Once or twice a year we might have a day out where we travel a little further to somewhere like Twin Lakes in Melton Mowbray or to Twycross Zoo. On these occasions I will ask for a contribution towards the cost.

I do not work bank holidays so parents are not expected to pay me on these days. I may take up to four weeks holiday per year but at least one months notice will be given.  If I am on holiday or off sick then there is no charge.  If the children I mind are off due to sickness or holidays then the full fee is charged.  Fees should be paid in advance either weekly or monthly. 

You will be asked to sign a contract to secure your child's place and confirm that you agree to my terms and conditions. 

For more information feel free to call me on 07544 196711 or email me  (corbychildminder@yahoo.co.uk).

I have a seperate charging policy for Funded Early Learning for two year olds and Funded Childcare places for three and fouryear olds.  This is available on request.

NEW!!! I am now offering an evening babysitting service in and around Corby.  Prices start at £8.00 per hour, minimum charge of 3 hours.  Unlike most babysitting agencies there is no booking fee.
