Reasonable rate for overnight care

(12 Posts)

What is the going rate/percentage of day rate where a nanny is asked to stay overnight in loco parentis?
eg: If a nanny is paid �10 per hour, is a 50% discount reasonable between the hours of midnight and 7am? Or is 20% closer to the norm?
I genuinely have no idea and would caveat this by saying that I would expect to pay the full day hourly rate if a child was a baby or toddler with frequent night feeds/wakings for example.

Full day rate if waking baby toddler is reasonable.

For non waking children hrly rate til midnight n from 7am or earlier if children wake at 6! Then a �30-50 rate for bit overnight dependant on hrly rate location etc.

For a 7-7 night for sleeping children rate seems to be �65-100 depending on experience location normal rate and 24hrs �125-200

Hope that helps

24 hours is roughly £150

From a contractual percentage I was hoping to get to a position where overtime from 7am - 12am was X and 12am to 7am was Y

If children sleep then I charge £30 from midnight till 6/7/they wake

And my normal rate 7-midnight

If young baby/awake then I charge normal rate per every hour - like night nannying

Most do as blondes says - day rate, babysit rate if different, sleepover fee. 24hour care might be rounded to a sensible number.

I am interested in this as well. Any idea where I would be able to find overnight care? I would need 10 pm to 8 am. Children would b awake for only one of the hours.

Blondes that info is very useful I was wondering what your hourly charge would be?

Depending where you are someone on here maybe able to provide overnight care alternatively can try childcare.co.uk or an agency

jadegreencake - where are you based?

we pay our nanny her usual rate up til 11pm then a flat overnight rate of £20-30 and then hourly again in the morning

eg 24hrs from midday to midday - normal rate £8/hr from midday to 11pm (£88), and 7am-12pm (£40) then £20 for the 8 hours of sleep rounded up by £2 to make £150.

This includes all meals and saying it's OK for her boyfriend to stay over as well,

I'm a CM and I charge a flat rate of £80 for an overnight.
