Just wondering if any one knows the rates for child minding in child’s own home.
My mum is looking after my ds since I went back to work but its too much for her and she only wants to take him 3 days now.
I have booked 2 parental leave days off a week to mind him myself but am interested how much it would cost to have him minded those 2 days.
Its an intersting one this…….when you have a child minded by a childminder in their own home they are providing a service to you from their own home, they are self-employed and can set their own rates, terms, holidays etc. etc and pay own tax and prsi.
But when you take someone into your home to mind your child you are employing them and you become their employer…..all employment law kicks in with minimum pay, holiday pay, you paying tax, prsi etc…….
