Cost of Childcare
An Au Pair lives with you in your home and their weekly rate includes room and board.
A Nanny is an employee and is paid an agreed hourly rate. Dream Nannies range from Bronze Nannies $24 per hour to Platinum Nannies at $35+ per hour. Please note that if you employ a Nanny you will also be responsible for ACC and Kiwisaver which works out to approx $1 extra per hour your Nanny works.
A home-based Educator charges approximately $8 per child per hour.
If you have a 1 year old and a 3 year old in Auckland and need 35 hours of childcare per week.
