What do you pay your babysitter?

Sorry if this has been asked before. What is the going rate for a babysitter in this area? Say, a young graduate student with some experience with childcare babysitting a 2 year old for an evening?

Re: What do you pay your babysitter?

  • hi there! We have 2 regular babysitters and they each set their own rate. We pay one $10/hr and the other $15/hr. They are both in their early 20s with similar criteria to what you described.
  • Ours is a grad student in her mid twenties with some experience (not alot, but enough) for $13/hr.

  • Either 12 or 15....I always ask what they charge and pay that.

  • We usually pay $15/hr plus tip for a similar sitter.  I have 3 kids (7, 5, and 16 months)
