                    $15.8 $15.8 – $23.7 $15.8 – $27.3

                    It costs about $15.8 per hour (for one child) to hire a babysitter in Chicago, that’s about $2.39 more 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.
