                      Price of a Babysitter in Ottawa

                      $11.2 $11.2 – $16.8 $11.2 – $19.4

                      It costs about $11.2 per hour (for one child) to hire a babysitter in Ottawa, that’s about $2.22 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.
