  • Do I need to provide benefits?
    Benefits are not mandatory or required by law in most states, but offering your nanny benefits is a major plus and help you attract and retain top talent. If you decide to offer benefits, you may want to consider the following: Paid Time Off: Most nannies will expect some form of paid time off, whether it be vacation days, sick days, or personal days. Paid time off is a great way to show your appreciation for a job well done, and it also helps your employee take the time they need to recharge and come back even stronger. Health Insurance: Many nannies are not eligible for health insurance through their employers, so offering health insurance as a benefit can be a major major selling point. Retirement Savings: Retirement savings are another great way to show your nanny that you value their long term commitment to your family. Offering a retirement savings plan can help your nanny feel secure in their future, and it's also a great way to attract the top nannies. A continuing education allowance: If you want your nanny to keep up with the latest child care practices, consider offering a continuing education allowance. This benefit can help your nanny stay current on their education and maintain the high level of care you expect. These are just a few benefits that you may want to consider offering your nanny. By offering benefits, you can show your nanny that you value their contributions to your family and that you are committed to their long-term success.
  • What are the typical hourly rates?
    Rates can vary depending on a range of factors including location, number of children, experience, education, duties required, number of hours, and more. Families should be prepared to pay rates starting at $20 an hour.
  • How long does it take to find someone?
    Finding the right person for your household shouldn't be rushed. It's important to find someone who shares your values and is compatible with your lifestyle, and timing is totally dependent on the family.
