Childminder Fees

In 2015/16, the suggested Childminding charges set for full time childcare by NICMA’s Childminding Advisory Council [made up of working Childminders] are a minimum hourly rate of £3.30 per hour per child. Part time places may be charged at an enhanced hourly rate.  This does not take into account regional variations.

As Childminders are self employed childcarers, they can set their own terms and conditions and therefore the suggested charges are a guideline only.

For further information on childminding fees, contact NICMA on 02891 811015.

Minimum Standards

CHILDMINDING AND DAYCARE FOR CHILDREN UNDER AGE 12

The ‘Minimum Standards’ were launched in July 12 as a means of providing a consistent level of quality for all childminding and daycare services and to ensure a consistent regional approach to registration and inspection.

There are 2 documents relating to Minimum Standards:

  1. Childminding and DayCare for Children under age 12 – Minimum Standards – July 12
  2. Childminding and DayCare for Children under age 12 – Minimum Standards – IMPLEMENTATION GUIDANCE – July 13

The Business Side of Childminding

Please note that a new tax year began on 6th April 2015 - Further information on what has changed (including personal allowances) can be found in NICMAs Getting Off to a Good Start Booklet, available for members free on charge in the members area.
