Paging STW Dads. Bit of advice required please. My little boy is 17 months old and Mrs Bueller has decided we can resume a monthly date night now he's settling down and sleeping Ok. Mini Bueller goes to bed at 7pm and generally sleeps without issue. We have asked one of the young ladies at his nursery (who he is fond of) to babysit. She is a fully trained nursery nurse and CRB checked.
She has quoted £20 - £30 (she wasn't specific with an hourly rate) to look after him from 7.30 to 11.30, with us collecting and dropping her off (about 8 miles each way) as she doesn't drive. Is this about right? What do you pay? Knowing Mrs Bueller, we'll probably be back before 10.00 anyway!
