Hi! I’m new to this group and have a question I would like to ask some other nannies!!
Iv worked in childcare either nannying or as a teacher for about 7 years. I’m currently nannying for a family of two children in rapid city SD for about 6 months. an almost three year old and a just barely two month old. I work about 35 hours a week. I take the older child to the park, to gymnastics if needed, to lunch, out for play dates. Iv also been doing school work with him and he now knows all his letters numbers colors and shapes, he can also spell and write his own name and is starting to associate letters with sounds. I have both children all the time. I make 12$ an hour Which is what I was making before the second child was born. I can’t help but feel I should be making a little more considering there is now two children and also everything that I do with them both. I don’t get any benefits and if they leave town I don’t get holiday pay or anything. What should I do???
