I am thinking about going back to work. I was wanting to know if any of you mothers know what the running rate is for having a nanny. I would want someone to come to our house and watch my daughter for 8 hours Monday though Friday. Just trying to see what a good rate is for that position.

Thanks

Hi! I am in MD and was a nanny for 10 years before I had my daughter I was getting $12 - 15 an hour. I started again when my daughter was 4 months (she comes with me) and now I get $10 an hour. If it is to much for a regular nanny maybe you could find a SAHM to watch your baby. Good luck!

We pay $40 a day but I take him to her house on my way to work. We call her our nanny because she only watches my son and she treats him like her own child.

That is actually the site that I am looking on now. It does seem like a great site.

I used a great web site called nannies4hire.com and got hired from there and also found a nanny for my own daughter on that web site.

Thank you Chelsea for that information that is super helpful and I hope I can pay someone that much because I know we can afford that rate. I may just work part time so that I wouldn't need someone 40 hrs a week. Just got to sit down and figure out our money situation

If you go through a nanny service it will be quite pricey. Maybe look around for a friend that would be willing to come to your house?

A friend of mine nannied for awhile before she had kids and she was bringing in an average of $400 a WEEK..

Mind you she lived in north Dallas at the time and cost of living there is quite high.

Hey Sunrise thanks for the information I am in North Carolina. I have found some good nanny sites and recommendations from a friend that use to nanny. Still not sure if we can afford it. So mainly still in research mode.

I would assume you'd pay more than you would for a facility since the nanny is traveling to your home. Although the trade off for that might be that she is eating a meal or two while in your home. The going rate in a facility in MI averages about $4.50 per hour per child. In home at the providers house is NOT much different here in MI, maybe $3.75 per hour per child at the least. It really depends a lot on their credentials. Where are you located?
