Re: Going rate for looking after children

Are you qualified? How old? How many children?

Re: Going rate for looking after children

I can just tell you that I was hired without experience to care for one 3 year-old child for 20 chf per hour net. After six months, they raised my salary to about 23 chf net.

well if she babysits only for a short time then yes, I can understand how the hourly rate would be higher. but for longer hours, that may be a bit too high. I mean, if one can get it, good for him, but it might sound a bit of a cheeky offer to a prospective family

Re: Going rate for looking after children

hi,
it all depends on the qualifications of the person hired and the work they are expected to do. If they are qualified then the the rates are higher but if no experience/ local qualifications then the rates are lower and can be anywhere between15-23. it also depends on the work permit and nationality of the hired person.
35SFr for babysitting is on the highest side and can be demanded only if the person has RECOGNISED CHILDCARE QUALIFICATION.

How? You mean the languages the sitter/nanny speaks?

OP, is that for your work?

Depends, if you are a register nanny, and the center is paying you, or directly your employer and you gota pay your own tax/social security, etc etc. Also, depends if you are a nanny and you work out of your own home and have other kids, or, if you are sitting at your employer's home, if they want any other work, etc. Search for threads here, we got some good info here on this matter.

Re: Going rate for looking after children

Anywhere between 20-30CHF per hour is normal. You're not doing 100% so you could ask at the higher range of this I think. Going above that is still possible depending on qualifications etc, it's better to ask higher and say it's negotiable than go in with a more sensible figure and then get knocked down. From their viewpoint they will have to pay extra as well for additional social contribution if it's to be declared. PM me if you want a sample excel spreadsheet for a nanny.

Re: Going rate for looking after children

You are in the area, right? It also very very much depends on credentials and experience you have, age, general edu, etc. A young sitter for occasional sitting is according to gov guidelines taking 12-16fr, I heard normal rate without many questions asked was 15-20fr, more if you have courses, years of experiences with certifs, etc. Nobody I know here in la Cote pays 30fr an hour.

Re: Going rate for looking after children

It also depends on the age of the kids.

Tagesmütter, ("daycare mother"- registered, pays taxes, but not necessarily qualified) who have kids that are 5 and older get paid about 7-10chf per kid per hour.

The neighbours Tagesmutter gets 25chf/hour for 2 kids, working about 30 hours a week.

Au pairs, who live with you- so have no rental or meal costs, get 400-800 chf/month "pocket money".

Teenagers babysitting use the rule of thumb - 1 chf/ year of school- so if you have a 13 year old babysitting, you pay them about 7chf/hour. A 21 year old would get 14 chf/hr. Though others pay a flat rate of 50chf per evening.

Re: Going rate for looking after children

thanks Rang..... for the elaborate information.
the rate of tagesmutter also depends on the family income so if one earns on the lower side it can even be as low as 5SFr/child/hr.
also they need to attend a few courses like first aid etc for a registration.(at least our verein asks for it)
