Babysitting rates?

I am thinking about hiring a college girl to come watch DD one day a week. I am a wedding planner, and need one day to get meetings scheduled and so forth.

How much would you offer? I am thinking about 9 am-5 pm. They would be at our house. 

The only weird thing about it is that the college (Belmont) is about a 20/25 minute drive, so I would have to make it worth it for the girl.

Re: Babysitting rates?

  • The high school girls in my 'hood charge btwn $10-15/hr.  I pay my nanny $14/hr
  • We had a PT nanny that watched DD one day/week.  We paid her $100/day for ~ 9 hours.  She watched her at her house, not ours, so maybe that makes her a babysitter, not a nanny?  It was close to DH's office and she had a great setup, so that made more sense than her driving 30 min to our house. 

  • THe couple I babysit for pay me around $10-12 an hour.
