At the end of your maternity leave, you will need to employ someone to take care of your baby. You surely want the best for your child and the price you pay. Speaking of the cost, we often rush to think monetary. Still, beyond the sum you pay to receive our services, you must invest in building a working relationship with the nanny.

You certainly wouldn’t want to pay for a nanny that lets petty issues loom large. Matters can spiral out of control if unaddressed over some time. Being level-headed in handling a nanny and letting rationale, temperance, understanding, and reason prevail for a cordial relationship to stay alive can prove profitable.

Your search fee of $100 will cover the expense of assessment and complementing a nanny’s competencies, proficiency, and traits with the type of work meant to be carried out. Matching nannies with the appropriate families is at the core of the success of our operations. Client satisfaction is anchored on knowing they can never go wrong when getting the right person for the job.

  1. Engagement Fee

Weighing against resident and countrywide nanny agencies of good standing, Morningside Nannies offers competitive rates when it comes to engagement fees. One must pay a minimum referral fee of $1000 once the nanny has accepted your job offer. This fee is payable by clients who hire a nanny on a long-term basis. The referral fee is the equivalent of six weeks’ gross wages earned by the nanny. Clients that employ temporary caregivers pay a referral fee of at least $25 to $40 maximum for every day the nanny is at work.

  1. Nanny’s Salary

Clients reach an agreement directly with the nanny on the gross hourly rate. This is done once the client has found a suitable nanny for the work at hand. Recommended rates for Morningside Nannies range from $14 on the lower side to $18 maximum per hour. Most of our nannies earn between $15 and $16 per hour.

  1. Taxes and Insurance

The law requires that household employers be obliged to pay tax. A nanny’s tax remittances may sum up to approximately 10% of the nanny’s gross annual salary. However, tax breaks and credits may come as a relief to a nanny employer. Occasionally if you get lucky, the tax breaks received can be over a substantial portion of taxes.
