                        Price of a Babysitter in Amherst

                        1 Child (per hour) Multiple Children (per hour) With Tip (per hour)
                        $12.9 $12.9 – $19.3 $12.9 – $22.2

                        It costs about $12.9 per hour (for one child) to hire a babysitter in Amherst, that’s about $0.58 less than the national average of $13.44 per hour. Additional children can cost up to 50% more per child that needs care but many sitters charge much less or nothing additional for two kids. A tip is not always necessary but always appreciated. 10 to 15 percent is common but again, not a requirement.
