Au pair and nanny salaries (sometimes known as "pocket money") obviously vary according to a number of factors. Au pairs and nannies' hours and duties vary from host family to host family, and therefore so does the weekly amount of money they are paid. An au pair will normally receive free accommodation and food in addition. Qualified nannies will normally be paid more than an au pair. The au pair salary information below is intended to provide a guide.
