Nanny costs in Philadelphia and NJ

What is the current pay rate for nannies near Philadelphia area?

According to the Philadelphia Nanny Network average salaries for nannies in Philadelphia are $12,5-20 per hour  and mostly depend on the nanny’s level of education, child care experience and numbers of children.

While the salaries of nannies in Philadelphia can vary greatly, according to the International Nanny Association’s 2010 Nanny Salary and Benefits Survey nannies in Philadelphia earn on average $15.55 per hour.   

The cost of an Au Pair is approximately $7.58 per hour regardless of how many children parents have.  65% of Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency have completed some college or are college graduates.

Most Au Pairs have specialty skills such as infant qualified with at least 200 hours of documented experience caring for children under the age of 2 and CPR and First Aid certified. Some of Au Pairs have experience caring for children with special needs, post-secondary education in a child care related field, professional or technical training in a child care, educational or medical related field and prior Au Pair experience either in the U.S. or abroad.

Au Pairs are screened, personally interviewed and  meet regulatory requirements that include background checks, verified child care references and more. Go Au Pair is providing to Host Families affordable childcare more than 20 years from qualified Au Pairs and Au Pairs from our agency have been internationally recognized through this award in 2009, 2005 and 2004. Our Flexible Choice Program offers families a variety of options regarding payments to allow the program to be more accessible and affordable to all host families, including a customized payment plan.

So, why pay double?

At a cost that is two times  less than a nanny cost, parents can have reliable and flexible childcare while exposing the kids to another language and culture.

Happy Thanksgiving Host Families, Au Pairs and everyone!

I love Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday.  People travel thousands of miles to be with their family. It is time to say thank you for good things that we are grateful for.

Most of All

Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.
