It probably varies a lot throughout the country. You also have to consider skill level, number of kids they are watching, and their abilities and references.
I know some families in my neighborhood hire some high school and early college level teens for about $8-$15/hour, depending on the number of kids and the night--holidays and weekends are pricier, weeknights are less. These are teens the families have known very well since they were little girls, so there is a pretty high level of trust there. These teens are certified in CPR and first aid, and have clean driving records, but they do not have any other certifications, so I don't think anyone who didn't know them would hire them.
