Being a full-time nanny is amazing - but what can you earn?

How much can I earn as a full or part-time nanny?

Feeling confused about pay?

Being a nanny is one of the most fulfilling careers you can have. Working in childcare, you get to form special bonds with families and help their little ones blossom.

However, understanding what you’ll earn at the end of the month can be confusing. You might find yourself feeling a little baffled when it comes to answering the question “how much can I actually earn?”

We’ve created a handy calculator to show your estimated pay depending on the hours you work per week. Please remember:


      • your gross pay is what you earn before any taxes or additional deductions

      • your net pay is what you pocket after taxes and pension contributions

    As a nanny, it’s essential that you understand your gross and net pay and the difference between the two. You might be tempted to only focus on net pay. Learn why gross pay is just as important.
