Today's topic is crucial for you: babysitting rates and fair pay. You work hard to ensure the well-being of children and contribute to the balance of families, but it's just as important to look after your own financial well-being.
🔍 The Pay Gap: A Point Not to Ignore
Imagine a family needing 75 hours of childcare a month. This family would pay around €1950 to an agency, at an average rate of €26/hour. How much would you earn as a babysitter? Only €660 net for the month. That's less than a third of what the family pays. This applies to all hourly rates - the gap is enormous, and to the babysitter's detriment!
🤝 Families and their willingness to invest in quality
Many families are aware of the importance of providing a quality environment for their children. They are even prepared to pay tips on top of the agency's fee to guarantee the quality and loyalty of their babysitter. This raises the question: if families are willing to invest in quality, why isn't this investment always reflected in the babysitter's remuneration?
🎓 A proven precariousness!
Babysitting is very often a source of income for people from different backgrounds and life situations. Whether it's to finance your studies, supplement another job or simply pay the bills, fairer remuneration can make all the difference and improve living conditions!
🙌 Kidlee has a Solution for You!
Kidlee's "Duo" offer could be the answer you're looking for. If you're already working for a family, the two of you can join Kidlee together!
- Save the family more than 10 % on current overall costs
- It's up to the babysitter to increase her income to 50 % without costing the family an extra €1.
To take the example of the family that needs 75 hours a month and pays €26/hour (before subsidies), we would save the family €225/month, or €2,000 over the school year. For the babysitter, we'd take her from €660 net/month to over €1,000/month!
