If you're considering babysitting via Charly Cares, you of course want to know what you'll earn. Well, we have some great news for you... It’s all up to you!

We'd love to help you by providing you with some guidelines and advice regarding your hourly rate, but, in the end, you decide.

Babysitting rates

How much can you ask for as hourly rate? That's a very good question, and we can certainly help you figure it out. There are several factors that affect your hourly rate, such as your age, babysitting experience, and skills. You can also set your day rate slightly higher than your night rate. Babysitting during the day is often more intense when it comes to tasks and responsibilities, meaning you can set your hourly rate higher. Below, we'll give a couple of examples:

Babysitting Angel Isabelle (24) on her earnings:

“I really like that I can choose my own hourly rate, so that I can keep control over how much I want to ask. I raise my rate every year by about €0,50-1 euro, so that it increases along with my age and experience.”

“Next to my study loan, the money I earn while babysitting is a nice bonus. I mostly spend my money on clothing and going out. I also save up for vacations.”
