FAQs for finding a babysitter

What is a babysitter?

A babysitter is someone you can hire to temporarily care for children. It’s common to hear a babysitter referred to as a “sitter”. There are many babysitter duties that a babysitter can take on such as helping with homework, light cleaning, supervising swimming, or driving the kids to after school activities. Babysitters can help take care of children of all ages.

How much do babysitters charge?

The average rate for babysitters on Care.com as of January, 2023 is $15.71 per hour. A babysitter’s rate will fluctuate depending on where you live, the babysitter's level of experience, and the number of children they will look after. Other factors that can also influence the cost of care include the need for additional babysitter duties, specialized care, and overnight care. The Care.com childcare calculator can help you calculate your child care costs.

What’s the difference between a nanny vs babysitter?

How do you know when you want to find a nanny or a babysitter? This depends on your caregiving needs. Nannies usually have more responsibilities than a babysitter does and often earn a consistent weekly or monthly salary, whereas you typically hire babysitters on an as-needed basis. Families who need consistent care during the workweek will likely want to hire a nanny and may hire a separate sitter to watch their children on the occasional night or weekend. If you’re looking for a nanny or babysitter, Care.com can help you find someone trustworthy.

Are babysitters background checked?

Babysitters on Care.com are asked to complete an annual background check called a CareCheck. Sitters who complete this background check will have a badge on their profile displaying the date we ran the background check. While CareCheck is a good start, we strongly recommend that you take additional steps to hire a babysitter safely, such as interviewing candidates, checking references, and running your own background check. Visit our Safety Center to learn more.
