have heard pretty bad things about agencies. I think word of mouth/ mom groups is the best way to go

I used care.com. Lots of good options...I had to meet a lot of people to get a sense of who I wanted but it worked out great.

everyone wants at least $20/hour. my last baby was $18/hour. is this the new normal ?

Thank you so much

Depends on the market...And there are offsetting factor like hcol/lcol city and availability of workers...in my area nannies more plentiful/less expensive in the fanciest neighborhoods of the city because easily accessible to less expensive neighborhoods...but medium fancy suburbs have higher nanny costs because less accessible to neighborhoods many nannies want to live in (cost/social/ethnic etc etc).

18 is what I started at 6 years ago here...but again it’s hyper local market pricing.

Good luck!

And also here standard nanny package is time and half over 40 hours...two weeks paid vacation (you choose one week they choose the other) and about 8-10 holidays paid. Plus we made a contribution to her healthcare.
