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.

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 of charge in the members area.
