How much should a Student Nanny get paid?
Posted on 18.05.2016

When you have interviewed a Student Nanny you want to hire, you negotiate hourly rates and terms of employment directly with them. We recommend that parents pay students a reasonable wage that reflects babysitting fees in their area. This should be higher than the minimum wage but we’ve included the (rather shocking!) figures below so you have a starting point in mind. As another rough guideline, usually babysitting rates are about £8-£10 an hour, going up as high as £12-£14 an hour in some areas.

These rates are for the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage from April, 2019. The rates change every April.

25+ paid £8.21/hr

21 to 24 paid £7.70/hr

18 to 20 paid  £6.15/hr
