Hourly wages for Nannies in the Triangle area usually range from $11-20 dollars per hour (An example: A nanny who works a 40/hour work week making $13/hour would gross 520). This salary depends on several factors, including the nanny's education, experience, how many children the nanny has cared for, hours of the position and the location of the job. This price range is for live out, full- or part-time nannies.

Summer nannies typically work from the end of May or the beginning of June to mid- to late August. If you are interested in hiring a full- or part-time nanny, you should contact TRIO as early as February. Many college age individuals are interested in childcare and enjoy playing, teaching and nurturing children over summer break. Hourly wages for summer nannies range from $8-13 per hour.
