Depending on experience and location, a babysitter should charge a fee of $10-$15 an hour. The age and number of children are also other important things considered when babysitters set an hourly pay rate.
If a person has more than one child, the parent should expect to pay $2-$5 per additional child per hour. Typically, the cost varies from one babysitter to another. If a child has special needs that require regular interaction, the rate increases. If the babysitter also has other duties, such taking a child for appointments or tutoring a child, he or she may require a high wage. Meals, toys and other factors related to babysitting need to be accounted for when determining an hourly rate for a babysitter.
