Babysitters – How much to pay?
Thanks for the replies so far. I guessed about £20 – £25 for four hours, but as she quoted £20 – £30 and shes quite shy, I know i’ll end up giving her £30 and will probably also get some snacks in for her too. With £30 quid, snacks, plus lifts it will work out more than we pay her for the ten hours she has him at nursery where his meals are included.
I’m aware its a lot of responsibility and we will be trusting her with not just our son but also our home, so from that point of view I guess it’s cheap.Posted 3 years ago
Paging STW Dads. Bit of advice required please. My little boy is 17 months old and Mrs Bueller has decided we can resume a monthly date night now he’s settling down and sleeping Ok. Mini Bueller goes to bed at 7pm and generally sleeps without issue. We have asked one of the young ladies at his nursery (who he is fond of) to babysit. She is a fully trained nursery nurse and CRB checked.
She has quoted £20 – £30 (she wasn’t specific with an hourly rate) to look after him from 7.30 to 11.30, with us collecting and dropping her off (about 8 miles each way) as she doesn’t drive. Is this about right? What do you pay? Knowing Mrs Bueller, we’ll probably be back before 10.00 anyway!Posted 3 years ago
