What do I charge for childcare?

I am available to work Monday - Friday from 8am - 6pm. During these hours I charge an hourly rate of £4.00 (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.

This fee includes snacks and meals. You are welcome to provide food/meals for your child if you prefer. 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.

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. I will ask for one months fees as a deposit.

You will be asked to sign a contract to confirm that you agree to my terms and conditions and to confirm that you've seen a copy of my policies. All policies are kept in a file in the playroom that parents can access. They are updated regularly.

For more information about my childminding service, please 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 £7.50 hour. Unlike most babysitting agencies there is no booking fee.
