Nanny fees refer to a wide range of expenses that are related to paying your nanny, but the most common one is your nanny’s hourly rate.
This amount is determined by you, your share-family, and your nanny. However, because you are part of a nanny share, you won’t be responsible for the full nanny fee.
Instead you will pay about two-thirds, and the other family will pay two-thirds, which results in a financial boost for your nanny for taking a nanny share job.
This increase generally accounts for the extra children they need to care for, as well as the complications that come with having two employers.
Other Nanny Fees
There are other expenses that can be part of the nanny fees, but they’re up to you to include. You can pay for their health insurance, commuter pass, mobile phone, gym membership, among many others.
Additionally, there is an annual bonus you may decide to give at the holidays. This is typically 1-2 weeks of their usual paycheck.
When using a nanny payroll service, there are usually fees attached there. Some payroll services charge upwards of a few thousand dollars a year. Nanny Lane charges $80 per month and takes care of everything!
