The average wage a childminder can be paid is from £2.50 to £5.50 an hour per child. A childminder's salary rate varies depending on a number of factors, such as years of experience, additional training in an accredited program, location and the number of children to be cared for.
As of 2014, childminders are classified as self-employed individuals; OFSTED and the Families Information Direct in the United Kingdom do not regulate their minimum wage. Some districts, including Rebridge, have set an average payment for childminders. Rebridge suggests an hourly rate of £3.50 to $5.50 per hour per child for before and after school care. Northern Ireland suggested an hourly rate of £3.20 per hour per child. This rate is subject to change depending on the above listed factors.
