Setting the Nanny Salary

When considering the variables of the nanny's salary rate there is a need to weight the following factors - experience, which is the most important one, responsibilities and duties, number of children, live in or live out nanny and benefits that you would like to offer. Another important

factor which you may need to consider is the nanny education and degree. Like in many other industries, the employee education background influences the salary rate.


For example - if your caregiver has a degree in early childhood or she completed a specific course which is related to this area, then she should get paid more then a caregiver with no degree at all. Of course in any case, the most important this is to understand if the person that you are hiring can be responsible enough to carry out the desirable tasks. These tasks can also affect the average nanny salary calculation and may include the following - shopping, children/family laundry, cleaning, cooking and different errands.


In any case you will need to set the right expectations during the nanny interview when referring

to the nanny pay rate in order to prevent misunderstanding between both sides. you don't want

your caregiver to feel she don't get paid enough compared to the needed tasks. you as an employer should avoid the situation of employing an unhappy caregiver.

a nanny is something you should do on time as you expect your nanny to complete in time her tasks and duties.

or an incentive payment after the first year. If you plan to pay your nanny en extra

payment then you need to mention it when starting your relationship. In most case, nanny

salaries include some kind of special payment program.

salary and other benefits. if you think your nanny is doing a great job and you wish

her to stay with your another year, then you should make sure you keep her happy!
