Hello again,
Does anyone know what the going rate is for childminders please? Don't like the big "Super Store" type nurseries as they never seem as personal as Child minders. Thanks in advance.
P.S It is 48 oc here today!!

Hi Padster
Friends who use childminders pay approx 40 per day but this can obviously vary from childminder to childminder and it depends what they provide.

Don't discount nurseries - there are some good independent ones around here that aren't part of a chain and depending on the age of your child can cost a similar amount to a childminder - benefits include being able to meet other parents; your chld will have a social life of their own; and you aren't reliant on just one person

There are also lots of activities (mainly weekday, but some weekend too) to do with pre-schoolers all over SE1 and environs ... and lots of playgrounds and green spaces too
Cheers Julie
