Average pay for babysitters? More than $13

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

The website Care.com has released the results from its first annual babysitter survey.

After surveying about 1,000 parents, Care.com found the national average pay rate for a babysitter in 2014 was $13.44 an hour.

That's for a full-time caregiver, an after-school babysitter or a date-night babysitter.

For some parents, that $13.44 an hour is just a base rate.

The survey found 26 percent of moms and dads tip their babysitter.

Almost 90 percent gave an annual raise to their sitter.

And 1 in 10 pay an extra $5 an hour if they book a babysitter at the last minute.
