Childminders usually charge an hourly rate that they set themselves. Some may offer a daily or weekly rate. You will agree this with them before your child starts. You will also have a signed contract in place with your childminder which details notice periods, holiday care, any sickness and late payments.
The average rate for childminders in Norfolk is £3.93 per hour (September 2016) but this rate does vary throughout the county so it is important to check the information available.
You may also need to pay extra for food and/or certain activities so it is important to discuss this with your childminder before agreeing their terms.
