How Much Does a Baby Sitter Cost?

 
 average costTypically: $5-$15 an hour 
post E-mail post Post   Comments (59)
  Typical costs:
  • According to BabySitters.com[1] , rates paid by the hour depend on where you live and the ages and temperaments of your children. Hourly rates generally run $5-$15.
Related articles: Day Care, Nanny, Preschool, Elementary School

Additional costs:
  • Multiple children, long hours and baby sitters hired to work on holidays will increase the cost. It's not recommended to ask baby sitters to perform additional duties, such as cleaning the house.
  • BabySitters.com[2] recommend adding a tip to the regular hourly pay to encourage the sitter to make your family a priority.
Discounts:
  • According to BabyCenter.com[3] , some parents organize a baby sitting co-op -- a trade instead of paid service -- in which they take turns watching each other's children.
  • Sometimes families will pool together to hire a baby sitter for the night.
Shopping for a baby sitter:
  • Because costs vary by region, parents should ask other parents in their area what they normally pay their sitters, and what they pay for extras such as multiple children, long hours, late nights, and holidays.
  • The nonprofit organization Safe Sitter[4] says parents should pay according to experience. They recommend finding a sitter who likes children, is trustworthy and competent. Sitters should know basic first aid, how to care for a choking infant or child, and how to call for help in an emergency. Parents should always check references.
  • According to BabyCenter.com[5] , word of mouth is a good way to gather names of teens and adults in your area who like to baby sit. They also recommend checking your local Yellow Pages for a local baby sitting agency.
  • Sites that charge a fee, such as BabySitters.com[6] (which offers a three-month subscription for $30), SitterCity.com[7] (with an annual plan of $8 per month and free registration or a monthly plan of $10 per month and $40 registration) and 4Sitters.com[8] (with a one-time setup fee of $35 plus $7 per month) offer a search by zip code feature to help connect parents with desirable baby sitters.
  • Church, senior center and school bulletin boards, and online resources like Craigslist[9] are additional ways to search for baby sitters in your area, but be sure to do a thorough reference check.

I watch one 3 year old during the day, take him to appointments, etc, do home pre schooling with him. Also, do the dishes almost every day, laundry, sweep, watch the dog. Then on Friday's I do the major whole house cleaning. Also, have the two other children who are 5 and 8 after school for at least 2 hours. Then the parents run their errands when needed and sometimes do not get home until after six or later at night. I start at seven in the morning. I am the grandmother but the agreement was that I would get paid the same as a babysitter if I took the job instead of working outside.

I babysit my two cousins and one has severe autism. I babysit them two or three days of the week for 3-4 hours each time for the whole summer. They pay me all at once at the end of the summer and usually it's 100 dollars. They don't have a whole ton of money but I feel like I spend a lot of time with those kids and I should get payed more.

So I have a FRIENDs brother that's wants me to watch his 2 year old soon who isn't potty trained at all. He doesn't even tell you when he went pee or poop in his diaper. These people still live at home with their parents (they're in their 30s btw) and they want me to watch this boy for $90!A WEEK! That's 2 dollars an hour.. I have a 5 month old son to take care of as well. They drop off and pick up at my home but I still find that 90 a week is way to low coinciding the situation. -_-

I am a Nanny That will be with my current family for 1 year in october. I work from 745 am - 745 pm mon-Fri. I care for a 1 year oid and a 5 year old they both just turned 1 and 5. The mother of the family just announced a week ago that she is pregnant with her 3rd. Ive mentioned to them saying wow its almost a year and they said wow that was so fast... No conversation about salary or anything has come about and Im very concerned. I feel for what I do on a daily basis working 12 hours a day is worth more than 900.00 a week. I treat these childen as my own go above and beyond. I guess I can be too generous with gifts for the kids and also for both parents bdays xmas and the kids no one is ever left out. Is it premature to have a salary convo including the 3rd child ? Or how do I go about having this convo ... I am just confused, over worked and concerned. Please help !

Agency or Individual: Babysitter
I'm a babysitter from a wealthy suburb on the east coast, and I charge $7 for one kid, $10 for 2, $12 for 3, and up to $20 for 4, depending on if the kids are difficult. Once, I sat for a friend's little sister (Age 7) and was paid $15 an hour, and my friend was home for half of the time. It varies depending on the family- Some families think they can get a bargain with a naive sitter that doesn't know what to charge, but if they want quality care for their precious children, they're going to have to pay quality prices.

I have been hired for several caretaker jobs off of websites online and I have never even been offered less than $10.00 for one child, $15 for 2-3, and $20-25 for four. Even just picking up kids from school, taking them home and feeding them a snack while doing homework until their parent got home(usually 3-4 hrs max) I made$60+. How can parents be such rip offs with their children??

To all of you who feel that 3.00 an hour to care for your children is appropriate, here is an idea....how about you working for 3.00 an hour? And for 3.00 per hour that is what you get, a warm body who texts, talks on the phone, and watches TV.
As a professional Nanny I have NEVER had a client who would even interview, never mind hire, a person who feels their worth is 3.00 per hour, to care for their most precious little children.
But everyone feels differently and to those who want to pay so little, well...it says a lot about what you feel the safety of your children are worth.

HOLY HIGH PAY!!!!!

Posted by: sillysavy in Lansing, MI.Posted: September 5th, 2014 01:09AM
I'm shocked by how much people pay. Since when do you get paid over minimum wage as a teen babysitter? It's tax free & cush if the kids are sleeping.
When min wage was $3.85 the going rate in my area was $1/hr, 1/3 of min wage. You might get $2 from good payers & $3 for 3+ kids. Mind you I always made sure the house was impeccable.
The quality of care is based on the quality of the care provider, not how much you can pay. Paying twice minimum wage doesn't ensure good care. I love kids. I don't need to be paid through the nose to be "willing" to care for them. If I have to pay you $20 to put up with my kids, I don't want you here... at that point I question how much you enjoy it & how much is a just a pay day.
I have 3 kids. I'd never pay more than $8. I mostly watch for friends/family. I watched one child this summer for $50/wk (45hrs) & provided great care. You can't spend enough to ever ensure someone loves kids & enjoys it.

I am a student and I needed a babysitter for Valentines Day for me and my son's father to go watch a movie in the theater. When I got to class (I am 28 by the way I just graduated college) I asled some of my friends that I have known for the past 9 months in the classes we have all had together. When one girl said she would do it I felt great because she said she watched her nephew almsot every day. Well I asked her in advance if 20 bucks ould be ok for two kids for two hours and she said it was ok. So I told my boyfriend and he said good but I insisted that we pay her more than that because it was such late notice. I felt that 30 or 40 would brighten up her night. Mind you, we are not working and I am trying to get through college. So the movie ends, we walk home, and the door was locked so we just knock because it is an apartment and I could hear the kids playing in the living room. No one answered for a couple minutes... So I started looking for my keys... but the door opened just then. It was my daughter. We walked in and the girl was SLEEPING ON THE COUCH and my son was playing in the living room in front of her. I wake her up and give her the 20 bucks and told her I would see her tomorrow but I was so mad I wanted to scream! My daughter told me that she left my barely 1 year old boy on the couch too and he jumped off and hit his head.. NEVER and I mean NEVER settle for someone that may not do a good job or is someone that cant prove their education in child development. It needs to be a priority because these types of incidents can be dangerous and sometimes fatal to our kids. Let's treat the good babysitters better and only get ones that charge a normal amount, then you know they are the ones that take pride in what they do. Remember, these are our babies! If something happens to them they cannot be replaced! Thank you that is all...

Going rate in my area is $8-12/hr + add on for more then1 child. I agreed to $5/hr because the job was for a family friend who doesn't have much money.
I watched two children (2&8) from 530-1230. Feed them dinner, played games and tried to put them to bed. I was paid $20!!!! Parent said I was being paid for 4 hours because the children were asleep after that. Will never sit for them again and will only take fair wage. If your broke stay home - but don't cheat your sitter

I was told I was going to babysit a nine year old girl and her seven yearold half brother for about seven hours. When I showed up at the house there were three kids there and when I asked the mom why someone else was here she told me that she let her kids have two friends over each when they had a babysitter. The night was crazy and the parents got back at 2:00 am (the kids finally fell asleep at one), and they were supposed to be home at 12! They paid me 3 dollars and didn't even offer to drive me home( yes I had to walk 20 minutes to my house without a flashlight)!

I am just a stay at home mom, and with an infant and toddler of my own, its not hard for me to watch for friends who also need a little help getting started when they are all just now starting to have babies, but still work full time. given a couple of them are nurses now, but they are still paying a lot of school stuff, so I tel them I will help them out in the beginning and when they feel they are comfortable to pay more then do so. I hava an SUV that holds nine so its easy, cause I wait til my husband gets home from work to watch my kids and I tote those I am watching with me to do the errands and such. So long as I watch them in my home where I know that I have everything that I need and can still get everything done that I need to get done. I am happy. I have to wake up early to greet them, but thats ok, cause I can stay in my PJs all day if I want, of course I dont past 10am :D I havent had any kids past 6pm yet and I only work Mon-Fri. My kids have playmates and I have money :D

it is not minimum wage but when I get 20/hr how can I pay her 15/hr ???
I think it is wrong to make your baby sitter clean your house of do anything apart from child care if you make them clean than prepare to pay 80- 100 a hr that's how much I pay for cleaning maid.

I charged 13 per hour for a family with a slightly autistic 11 year old girl with lots of meds to be taken everyday (sweet, but very manipulative) and another 15 year old girl(sweet, but quite bossy). I am 20 years old with about 9 years of childcare experience. I am told that that price is very unreasonable while I have lists of chores to do and errands to run daily while the house must remain completely spotless. Thoughts on that?
