What Does The Nanny Charge?
Nanny salaries can vary widely depending on experience, the specific job requirements and the benefits provided as part of a complete compensation package. The starting hourly wage for a quality nanny in our area is commonly between $20 - $28 per hour. As a household employer, you pay your nanny directly on a weekly, bi-weekly or semi-monthly basis. For budgeting purposes, you can expect to pay between $800 - $1,200 per week for a full-time nanny.

Agency Fees
Our $175.00 search fee entitles you to unlimited use of our search and referral service to assist you in selecting and hiring a care provider. There are no additional fees charged until a candidate we refer to you accepts your job offer.

When you review the profile of a care provider referred by Childcare Solutions, in addition to viewing the candidates resume, references and hand written registration/application paperwork, you will also have access to their background-check information, which includes:
  • Copy of Driver's License
  • Criminal Records Report
  • Driving Records Report
  • Past Employers and References
  • Verified Past Address History
  • Social Security Number Verification
  • Copies of Certifications and Letters of Reference (if provided)
Once you have hired a care provider we will assist you with the employment contract using Childcare Solutions proprietary "Parent-Nanny Agreement" and "Household Checklist". We will also provide referrals for excellent nanny-tax, payroll and insurance professionals.

Most agencies in the US charge a Placement fee based on a percentage of the care-provider's annual compensation. Our fees are very competitive both locally and nationally and reflect the level of service you can expect from a professional nanny agency.
