Room and Board

All live-in nannies are provided with room and board. A separate bedroom, and many times a separate bathroom, will ensure privacy for each nanny.

Salary and Benefits

Nannies can earn a salary ranging from 30K-100K, depending upon experience, education and flexibility of the nanny. All compensation packages must be agreed upon between nanny and family, including gross pay, tax withholding, overtime, vacation/personal time off and health insurance. The Nanny Authority will assist the nanny and the family in the negotiations, and will be there for both parties during the entire process.

Transportation Expenses should be discussed. Families typically pay for the nanny’s airfare if she is not local, as well as pay for the nanny’s flight home after one year or more of employment.

Work Schedule

A typical work schedule for nannies is Monday-Friday or Tuesday-Saturday. All nannies are given 2 days off per week. Some families require alternative days off, and this should be discussed prior to the nanny accepting a job offer.


A nanny can expect to work 45-60 hours per week and additional hours should be compensated in time or money. Nannies should receive major holidays off with pay, and 1-2 weeks paid vacation. Usually vacations are taken after 6 months of employment at the employer’s convenience.
