Just to say I used the Mary Poppins agency last night (June 19th 2007) and found them to be completely professional and reliable. The cost is 7,50 Euro an hour with a 3 hour minimum booking, 12 Euros for the agency, and 3 Euros for travel. The babysitter (an older French lady) turned up early, was very easy going and sweet, and seems to have done all I told her.

nissa, I would think that would fall under the category of 'day care provider', rather than 'babysitter', which is another thing altogether. (At least, in my opinion.) ;-)-Kim

are these rates for the occasional night out or full time/daily rates? would you pay the babysitter who watches your child 8 hours per day the same rate?

Most people have told me around 5 euros, but that it also depends on the age and number of children.

Correction!  Apologies!  Have just checked with said daughter who says she no longer babysits for less than 7 euros/hr  (I really should keep up with the times..). She's probably right, too, it's a highly responsible job.  Still reckon the French pay less, however..

Hi Coley,

I babysit alot around the CDA and usually get paid 10 euros an hour. This is because i'm a wee bit older and have my own car etc but the usual rate can vary from 5 - 10 euros.
