Babysitting Question

  I know I don't post all that much on here, but I have a quick question.  A family that goes to the school where I teach asked me to watch their 2 kids for two days after school this coming week.  She asked me what I'd charge, but I'm not sure what the going rate is anymore.

  The kids are in 2nd and 4th grade.  I'd be watching them on Wednesday and Thursday after school from about 3 to 6.  I'd have to take one to dance on Wednesday and one to basketball practice on Thursday.

Thanks ladies!

Re: Babysitting Question

  • I pay my sitters $10/hr for one kid. But he's 3 and kind of a hellion, so there's that, too.

  • I would think $25-30 a day, depending on how far you're going to be driving and what else you'll do with the kids. Fixing dinner, helping with homework, etc.

    I babysat some this summer (I'm also a teacher) and it seems $10 an hour is the going rate for younger kids.

  • Thanks!  I was thinking around $10/hour.
