Nanny Share Rates
We live in the Oakland Hills and are starting a nanny share. Our nanny has about 18 years of experience, is a great communicator and our 4-month-old son loves her.
She quoted a rate of $35-$40/hour for a share and is pushing for the $40 end of that range. This seems very high relative to what I have seen on BPN but I wanted to collect more data from our wonderful community. If you have experience with a nanny share in the area can you quickly reply back with your rate per hour? It would be so deeply appreciated as we navigate this difficult and stressful conversation. Her rate is much higher than we had budgeted or anticipated and are now scrambling to find a way to properly value her skills with a fair rate and yet also come up with something we can actually afford.
Thank you so much for your help!
