How much do nannies and babysitters typically earn?

Both nannies and babysitters earn between $60-$70 pesos per hour. The hourly pay remains the same, whether it is in the evening, early in the morning or at weekends.

What about holiday pay?

Nannies who have worked for an employer for more than six months are entitled to two weeks’ holiday. The amount of holiday entitlement increases with the length of continuous employment, up to a maximum of five weeks (35 days).
The employer must pay salary and other benefits to the employee during annual leave. This payment is calculated by dividing the salary by 25 and then multiplying it by the number of days’ holiday to which the employee is entitled. This must be paid in advance, and leave must begin on a Monday.

How are the childcare professionals and language teachers represented by WCN compensated?

World Class Nannies acts as an agent to introduce suitable candidates to work as nannies, babysitters or English teachers. The Agency acts as an introduction agency only and does not directly or indirectly employ the applicant.

What are the families responsibilities?

Clients are responsible for the following:

  • Employment contract
  • Registration of employee with the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP)
  • Paying employee on a bi-monthly basis
How many hours per week does the family typically request?

Nannies work between 15-48 hours per week, in some cases up to 45 per week. Language Teachers work anywhere between 4-10 hours per week.

Employees must not work more than:

  • Eight hours a day, which can be extended to nine hours a day if an employee works fewer hours on another day of the week.
  • 48 hours a week.
Do I need to be bilingual if I am a Native English Speaker?

Due to the high demand for English Mother Tongue (EMT) nannies, being a Native English Speaker alone is sufficient for some families. In fact, most families prefer their nanny not to speak the native language spoken in the home when teaching a second language, as it ensures a constant single dialogue between nanny and child.

Do I need to speak English and Spanish or are other languages accepted?

All languages are welcome! However, we do require non-EMT nannies to speak an intermediate level of Spanish. We work on behalf of families from all over the world that request nannies who speak their native language and/ or a second language, to either maintain the family’s mother tongue or teach a second language to the child. Some of the most requested languages include English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, and Portuguese.
