I have been babysitting & nannying for 10 years & am now a stay at home mom to a 5 month old. I have been trying to start babysitting from my home (looking for ONE child close in age to mine, so not a day care). I've been searching for months with no luck. I use sittercity and even recently posted an ad on craigslist. I get a lot of replies but as soon as the pay comes up, I lose them. So I live in Columbus, Ohio & the care.com calculator says the suggested $ for 1 child hourly is like almost $15.
