    Default Nanny: How much to charge?

    Hi all. I am considering starting work as a nanny. I am an Early Childhood teacher, with loads of experience working with young children.

    I am just wondering what would be an average hourly rate to charge?
    Would love any input people may have.

    Thanks

    When i considered doing this i factored what i would be paid should i be working within a centre! so i usually charged around $20 per hour.

    I know someone who has just engaged an early childhood teacher and i think they're paying $27-$28 an hour.

    $25 or thereabouts. The more children/the more you do (cooking, cleaning etc) the more you can charge.
    I worked as a nanny for 7years, best job!!

    With qualifications, experience and good references you can easily charge $25 an hour.
    Make sure you have a valid working with children check and criminal check.

    Nanny rates can largely be impacted by demographic. Sydney/Melb CBD and surrounds attract a higher rate, whereas other suburbs you might find it harder charging the same amount.

    Given that you're qualified and trained and I imagine you'd have your WWCC/First Aid I wouldn't take anything less than $20p/h. Once you've got some nannying references under your belt I wouldn't be charging any less than $22p/h.

    These days I negotiate my rate based on what the family offer. Eg $25p/h, I'd come down to $23p/h based on the family offering holidays/sick leave and super.
