Any ideas, gals? What's a standard hourly rate for NJ? 1 child. No housework involved, babysitting only. In our house, for 3-5 hours per day.<br><br>
Thanks! This is the first time I've needed to know this kind of info, and I have a feeling the babysitting rates from my college days are way obsolete now!

NYC ranges from $8-12/hr. I usually end up finding someone who will accept $10. I've never found anyone willing to take less - except the high school kid who lives in the building took 8.

Are you hiring a teenager or a college student? I pay my teenager $10 an hour. I pay my college student-who drives my kids to after school activities $12 an hour.

Ok, thanks for the info. She brings her baby along with her, and watches mine as well. It's working out pretty well, the babies have fun together.
