Wondering how your babysitting rates compare with your peers? UrbanSitter surveyed nearly 1,000 babysitters and nannies to help you decide how much you should charge for babysitting. We’ve calculated the average rates sitters are charging, and we show how this differs by city, level of education, years of experience, age, and ethnicity.

As a job marketplace that caregivers turn to for essential income, UrbanSitter strives to support diversity, inclusion and equity. While it is up to each sitter to decide their babysitting rates on UrbanSitter, we hope that by sharing this information, more sitters and nannies will feel empowered to charge what their peers are charging, regardless of their age and ethnicity.

We recognize that what you want to charge doesn’t always align with what a parent wants to pay. There is more work to be done educating both sides of our marketplace and society at large. Stay tuned as we will share future projects and initiatives to support equity.
