Care.com states that, as of 2006, nannies charge between $325 and $800 a month if they are living with the family and $8 to $20 per hour if they drive to the home for work every day.
These numbers pertain to nannies who are caring for one to two children. A younger nanny is likely to have less experience, which makes it appropriate to pay her less than a nanny with years of training. If the hiring family lives in an area where the cost of living is high, higher wages for a nanny are expected. A nanny who does not live in the home is typically compensated for gas mileage.
