I'm going to be nannying my niece, how much should I charge my sister and her husband?
Should I charge by the hour, or what?
For all you mamas who've nannied,what were your rates? I told my sis I'd charge less than the local daycares' would,and I'd like to,but I also want to make a profit.
I would find the price of local daycares and then cut $50-$100 a month off your price.
If you are watching the kid on a full-time basis, the per-hour amount may not come out very high. We pay $290/week for our two kids (at a daycare) and that breaks down to $7.25/hour for two children.
well youd have to research your local daycares first and see what they are charging. here the centers charge $3/hr and the home daycares you can get as low as $2.25/hr. So you would need to know your areas prices first.
Then you can make a deal somehow. see how many hours it would be a week and lets say it was going to be $120/week for normal daycare you could charge $100. idk, thats something the two of you would have to work out.
Thanks:-). I'll definately check out the daycare rates.I had no idea they went that low per hour:-0.

in your area they might not. I live in a small rural poor community.
I pay my nanny $5 an hour per kid. She is an early childhood education major and CPR and first aid certified. Spendy but worth it. I give her less when she does overnights since I work nights, unless the kids were asshats
I was a live-in nanny. I had free room and board. I got paid $700/month and was given separate money to take the two kids out to the museum or zoo.
My sister watches my boys while living with us for free. We pay her $60/wk.
I pay my nanny $10 a hour, $15 a hour if the kids are sick. It works out to around $300 a week.
When i was a nanny i was paid $12/hr. If they went out of town and left the baby i would get $100 a day. And if i went on vacation with them i would get $100 a day and spending money for food and shopping.
