Should Nannies be paid differently?
Q) Should Nannies be paid according to their abilities/skill sets?
I wanted to throw out the idea (I cannot commit to an opinion on the subject myself) that a Nanny’s responsibilities can vary and therefore should a Nanny be paid differently according to role? For example:
A Nanny who cares for a newborn-3 year old must oversee every facet of that infant’s care. This is also a vital stage in overall development. The workload can be complex and constant. Should a Nanny who takes care of an infant during this stage be paid more than:
A Nanny who cares for a child in preschool/school and is engaged in food preparation, picking child up from school and taking child on playdates.
