Salary is negotiable between the family and the nanny, but most full-time nannies expect to work weekdays for about 40 to 50 hours a week. You can expect to pay about $500 per week for an entry-level nanny who will be doing childcare and childcare-related tasks. Nannies usually expect to make closer to $600 and up per week for increased responsibilities such as caring for more than one child, driving, housework, etc. Experienced nannies may have a set rate that they charge. Part-time nannies usually make $12- $20 per hour depending on the responsibilities.
