Rate for 'Baby'sitting?


I think this has been asked before , but how much would you give a babysitter for 5hrs childcare (in the afternoon?)


Thanks all

If I put up the rate then the local people she sits for would have my throat. It's an uncompromising circle one gets stuck in.

We asked how much our baby sitter thought was fair. For about four hours she wanted €20. That was last year, our two daughters now look after themselves, but 'inflation' might have made that €25 by now. Incidentally, she is not a young girl but a 'granny' who does this for quite a few people.
