Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL BABYSITTER’S DAY – Saturday before Mother’s Day

National Babysitter's Day Saturday Before Mother's Day


This year National Babysitter’s Day is observed on May 12.  This special day is celebrated the Saturday before Mother’s Day.  On this day, we give babysitters across the nation appreciation and special recognition for their quality child care.  

Babysitting isn’t what it used to be. In certain parts of the country, babysitters earn a good chunk of the mighty dollar. Their skills factor into their hourly rates, too. Depending on the area of the country, sitters can demand anywhere from $12 to $20 an hour.

Money aside, they do provide fun and safe care so parents can have some time for some rest, a dinner and maybe a movie.


Take advantage of the opportunity to show your appreciation for your babysitter.  Send them a special thank you gift of flowers, candy or a handmade thank you card from your little munchkins!  Share your appreciation on Social Media using #NationalBabysittersDay.
