After comparing the average babysitting rates per country, Singapore ranks in the middle, between France and Finland.
Worldwide babysitting rates
For those looking to travel or live in other countries, (or even for those interested in hiring a virtual babysitter from abroad (something we’ve tested here!), Babysits has provided a global infographic where you can compare babysitting rates across countries.
The low down:
- Babysitters in Switzerland, Australia, and Denmark are among the most expensive worldwide, with average rates ranging up to 16 euros/hour
Why the differences in rate in different cities and countries
The difference is related to minimum wage rates in different states, regions, and countries, to a degree. The cost of living could also play a factor (for example, more wealthy or high cost of living areas may have more expensive babysitting). Further factors may include differing densities of experienced/certified babysitters in different areas, for example, urban, densely populated as opposed to more rural areas.
