Just how much will you earn as a summer nanny? Well, it depends on where you live and what other nannies in your area are being paid. You could be making anywhere from $10 per hour to over $20. Whether you've worked as a summer nanny before, your education, and whether you find work in a city or town has a lot to do with how much you're paid. The other thing to take into consideration is how many weeks or months you'll be in the summer nanny position. If “summer” starts in early April and ends the first week of September, you'll have earned five months worth of salary. At a minimum of 40 hours per week, at $8 per hour, five days per week, you'd earn $6400 before tax. Working a summer nanny job not only earns you money, it earns you experience and possibly another place to work the following summer.
