for babysitters? This is my great granddaughter I'm raising, and I haven't paid a sitter in many years. She is 6, does about everything for herself, and we will be gone from about 5:30 til 11 pm.

It depends on your area, if you will be providing snacks/meals, if it will be at your house/the sitters house, but i would guess between $5-10/hour

 Check rates in your area, $5-10 most of the time.

I think it's really regional. $5-$10 seems to be the range.

If you can find a second shift daycare it will be cheaper. If you are paying someone by the hour it's going to be more.
