Our aim is to attract a qualified and compassionate nanny who perfectly complements your family values.

Below is a general guideline for professional nanny rates and an overview of our placement fees.

Qualified Nanny Rates

Nanny rates vary based on several factors, particularly in the Bay Area where location plays a significant role. Please schedule a discovery call to determine a competitive rate that aligns with your expectations and location.


(Gross Hourly Rate)

Most professional nannies receive the following benefits in addition to their salary:

Two Weeks Paid Vacation

This can be offered upfront or accrued over the length of employment.

Guaranteed Hours

This benefit ensures the nanny receives pay regardless of whether their services are used, except when they have exhausted their sick time. (This is one of the most requested benefits.)

Mileage Reimbursement

Direct reimbursement for using their own vehicle during work hours, excluding the commute to and from work.

Vehicle for Job Use

Providing a vehicle for job use eliminates the need for mileage reimbursements, as the nanny would use your vehicle.

Paid Sick Time

California State law in 2024 requires 40 hours of paid sick leave per year for all employment types.

Paid Holidays

Payment will be provided for holidays that fall on weekdays. 

Health Insurance Stipend

This can be tailored to suit your candidate and their specific needs.
