Car allowance

If a car is provided for the nanny to drive then you will need to ensure that you have full insurance cover.If a nanny is to use her own vehicle as a condition of engagement, then an allowance of approximately $0.75 per kilometres for petrol applies over and above the agreed wage.Please check child safety constraints and vehicle insurance as Caring for Melbourne holds no responsibility for this.

Parking Cost

If there is a cost for Parking then the Client will reimburse the Carer for this cost

How to make Payments

Casual Agency Booking fee will be paid directly to the Carer who will then remit this payment to Caring for Melbourne Nanny Agency

  • Carer’s are to be paid in cash at the end of each shift, for regular clients they  may electronically transfer the payment at the end of the shift
  • This includes the Booking fee and any additional fuel and parking costs that may occur.

Our price list is a rough guide as to how much a carer should be paid per hour however it is between you and the Carer to negotiate and agree on an appropriate fee before the shift commences.
