Hey help!!

So other Canadian moms, what do you pay for child care? In your home? I have a 5&3 year old both girls, well behaved for the most part and I'm going to need a babysitter/nanny 2 days a week from 3pm-8:30pm. So 5.5 hours. What would be reasonable to expect to pay for that? What do babysitters go for? I need someone reasonably qualified, CPR First Aid is ideal with experience (no young teenagers) I have a kid with some reasonably serious allergies and I really need someone I can trust. Basically feed dinner put kids to bed so not overly grueling day just a few hours of child minding.

I haven't ever hired a babysitter for my girls, so I'm totally clueless. What should I expect to pay? I live in Winnpeg MB.

I'm in Ontario. My babysitter is a teenage girl whom I trust. Going rate in my area is what I'd say is on the low end. I know one woman charges $4/hr in HER home. I pay my sitter a little more than that, and she comes here.
