Some Other Factors to Consider

> Overnights - sitter is paid an hourly rate for the hours before bed time, and then is paid a flat rate for the overnight hours, usually anywhere from $25 to $50 per night, there for an average babysitting wage should be around 35$ per night.


> Location - If your babysitter needs to travel more than a mile or two each way, you should factor the cost of travel into your hourly rate.


> Holidays - Babysitting on the holidays is an great opportunity to help parents out and make a some money, too. Holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are the most popular for babysitting needs. The best solution for a rate of babysitting for these periods is to set a flat rate for a full day or night.


> The payment - paying a babysitter can be done per day, week or even a month. You should set in advanced the payment method in order to prevent misunderstandings with your sitter - should it be cash or check.


> Short notice - did you asked the babysitter to come in short notice or you gave her several days to prepare. If it was indeed a short notice then expect to pay more.


Average babysitter wages can and should be different when different tasks are expected.

For example, after school sitter should be paid differently then a night babysitter or from

an adult babysitter. A normal babysitting rate is something which is also affected from the

place you live in and the average income of local families.
