Beginning in October 2017, we started polling our Facebook community of over 18,000 members to get a better sense of nanny pay rates for the greater Seattle area. Over the past two weeks, we resurveyed the members to gather current data on pay rates to care for one child and to compare them to the results from October 2017. The results are in!
The first graphic below shows the results from our most recent poll followed by the graphic detailing the results from our October 2017 survey. As you can tell, the average pay is virtually unchanged.
As the graphics below state, please DO NOT use this as a definitive guide to nanny pay rates in our area. We did not ask respondents to include variables such as benefits, # of hours worked, job duties, the specific location in our area where the care occurred, etc. Use this as a rough snapshot of current trends in the Puget Sound region.
As you can tell, there is a vast difference in nanny pay rates across our region. Parents – what do you pay for a provider to care for your little one? Nannies – what are you paid to care for one child? Comment below!
