A nanny is a person, usually a woman, who takes good care of a child or children. This type of care is given only when the woman is with the child’s family environment. She is mostly with the family and rarely leaves the home unless the family no longer needs her service. A babysitter however, is a short term caretaker who is only hired to care for a child for a certain amount of time.
Statistics often show that nannies get paid by the hour, and their hourly rates may differ, but a nanny’s average pay by the hour is $ 19.00. This of course can still change due to some conditions mentioned below.
When the nanny is told to take care of another while she is assigned to a baby, the pay gets higher but not always doubled. This of course depends on the employer.
In an employer’s point of view, you are going to be filling up the necessary information.
Not her nickname but the complete name.
This is important in case there are some complaints, you are able to back track to see how much was paid and how much is needed to be paid.
This includes the hours, and the overtime.
If the nanny you hired is from an agency, you may fill up the following.
If you have received the previous ones, try checking the date. Usually your employer knows when you receive your pay and oftentimes they give it late or give it too early. Check the date.
Simply tell your employer that the policy of the agency you work in only allows the salary to be sent to them. That you may give your employer the copy of your previous receipts if you have any or tell the agency of this issue and they will help you with this.
Hiring for a nanny can be tough, paying them can be confusing too. But once you got the hang of what to fill in their receipts, and how much you are willing to pay, it’s a breeze from there.
