Salary and Compensation

Temporary Nanny Care

Compensation for Short-term Temporary Jobs

Short-term temporary jobs are extremely popular among our nannies given the flexibility it allows. These jobs are paid through the Nanny Network payroll system, and therefore, the agency will make appropriate withholdings for federal, state and other taxes, as required by law. However, with the addition of our Same Day Pay benefit (see below) you can get paid within minutes of completing a job. The hourly rates for back-up child care and babysitting jobs start out at $17.00+ per hour (pre-tax) in Baltimore, $18.00+ per hour in Washington, DC, and $17.00+ per hour in Richmond. The Nanny Network also offers a quarterly caregiver raise program for our best performers where a $0.50-1.00 per hour raise is available every 3 months for outstanding performance.

For temporary family assistant or Sidekick jobs in Baltimore (agency-paid), the hourly rate is $18.00+ per hour. For temporary assistant and Sidekick jobs in Washington, D.C., the hourly rate is $20.00+ per hour.

Our eLearning Aides and Private Educators can earn anywhere between $18-25 per hour (pre-tax) depending on their location and experience.  

Same Day Pay

We launched our Same Day Pay benefit in August 2022 for our temp nannies and were the first nanny agency in history to do so! Since then we have seen a significant increase in the amount of jobs our short-term care providers are interested in, given the speed in which caregivers can get paid. Gone are the days of having to wait to get paid until the next payroll cycle.  

Have you heard about our Nanny Specialist program?

The Nanny Network now offers a full-time job opportunity for caregivers who enjoy being part of a team of dedicated child care providers and helping loads of families in the process! Caregivers can join our team as a Nanny Specialist, earning $18.00-22.00 per hour (for a guaranteed 30+ hours per week) depending on experience and location. Nanny Specialists enjoy the flexibility of taking time off whenever needed (although we ask that you provide us with two weeks notice). Nanny Specialists also enjoy guaranteed hours, benefits, professional development and community, too! Do you have a solid chunk of time you’re looking to fill with rewarding work? Come work with us until you need to move on to your next adventure.
