I'm in MN. I pay $5.00 an hour for two kids. If the babysitter picks up after the kids and keeps things a little tidy, I usually pay $7.00 an hour.

Silicon Valley, CA part time nanny

I was a part time nanny after school in highschool. Two children ages 7 & 11. Picked the kids up from school took them to karate, did homework, fed them dinner, and sometimes put them to bed. I was making $10 an hour this was about 8 years ago. Looking on Craigslist the going rate is about $15 an hour for that sort of responsibilities.
Basic babysitting, if you are looking for the freshman in highschool kid to come over on a friday night you are looking at about $10 an hour.

I'm in downtown Chicago, and I babysit occasionally. I make $10/hour to watch one toddler, and I think I get paid badly. I know people who make upwards of $15/hour to watch 2 kids. But, it really depends on the situation, the area (affluent/not as affluent), and the time - you'll need to pay more for "prime time," Friday or Saturday evenings. It also depends on the quality of person, and the age of the person, that you want to sit for you. Younger teenagers will proably be happy with less, as might college students (though they may not be as willing to sacrifice a weekend evening).

In Philadelphia, the sitters usually get paid between $10-$20 per hour. If they are just coming over while your children are asleep and hanging out on the couch, that would be less money. If your sitter is a high school student, that would be less money. If your sitter is cooking, cleaning, and driving, that would be higher.

I wouldn't mind paying a sitter more if I really liked her and wanted her to keep coming back.
