    Default Going rate. What would you pay?

    How much would you pay a babysitter who is travelling an hour each way to look after 4 kids aged 3 - 8 all day Saturday (say 8am - 8pm) and all day Sunday (8am - 4pm)? Would this change if they had a cc qual??

    What is the going rate for a CC trained babysitter???

    Then they would most likely *not* be a "babysitter", you would pay them as you would a nanny.

    Casual going rate for a qualified and/or experienced nanny is about $35 an hour.

    Babysitting is around the $25 an hour mark for experienced sitters. They usually have min and max hours too - usually this is around 10 shifts for a nanny through an agency, max 12 hours.

    I honestly wouldn't have a clue, but perhaps $100 - $150 per day?

    To put a child into childcare for a day without any CCR or CCB can be anywhere from $70 to 90 per day per child.

    Wow $35/hr for a nanny?! Assuming that's tax free that is a lot. That's similar to my hourly rate after tax and I have a PhD lol

    Aah ok. Sounds more reasonable then!
    When I was 15 I babysat for $5/hr. obviously I wasn't qualified but times have changed! Hmm actually that was nearly 20 years ago - now I feel old!
