How do we compensate our Nanny?

In the Cleveland area it is typical for a nanny position to pay $15-$18/hr with a four-hour minimum to care for one or two children, and you can expect to pay an additional $1/hr for each additional child.

Positions of fewer than 25 hours per week generally do not provide any benefits. Full-time positions of 37.5 hours a week or more range from $675 to $800/wk or more depending on the unique circumstances. Typical things that may affect the pay rate are:

Your Nanny is your employee. Childcare Solutions will help you develop a job offer appropriate for your position and commensurate with the experience of the candidate.

Once an offer has been accepted we will help you create a comprehensive, written work agreement (PARENT-NANNY AGREEMENT) which documents the nanny's job duties and the details of the arrangement with your Nanny.

At your request, we will introduce you to tax and payroll experts who can assist you in managing your compensation package, and insurance experts who can tailor health insurance benefits to your care providers needs. It is entirely up to you to choose how you manage your employer-employee relationship, and we will be there throughout the tenure of emplyment to guide you along the way.

On september 11, 2013, the Department of Labor announced new regulations which will apply to the wages of Live-In care providers. Beginning Jan 1 2015, live-in nannies must be compensated the same way that live-out nannies are now, with time-and-a-half (overtime) wages paid for all hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek. See the Dept. of Labor website for details.
