Paying Your Babysitter

CalculatorWe know how crazy the back-to-school season can be. Sometimes you just don’t have time for school pick-ups and drop-offs, playdates, music lessons, sports and everything else in your kids’ busy lives. If you’re thinking about hiring a babysitter to help with your schedule, we found a new tool that can ease the hiring process.

Care.com’s babysitter hourly rate calculator takes into account where you live, how many children you have and the amount of experience your caregiver has before it suggests what you should pay her. The tool provides a great rough estimate of what other babysitters in your area are earning, but remember to adjust her rate if you ask her to do extra tasks, like grocery shopping or laundry. Finding a babysitter you trust and your kids love can be hard, so don’t risk losing her because of money.

How much do you pay your babysitter?
