My wife and I are looking into getting a nanny/nanny share for our 1 year old. From what I've read from recent posts, it looks like a nanny can run from anywhere between $15-30 per hour per kid. A couple of questions about pay:
1) What are the additional expenses? We want to make sure we do this right, so I'm curious what people know about PTO, vacation, OT, etc.
2) Aside from OT, does the rate change depending on hours worked. For instance, my wife and I will likely need someone from roughly 7am-4:30pm, 5x week. Any idea what the going rate for those hours might be?
