Can anyone in the NY/NJ area give me a rough idea what is the going rate for a Russian live-in nanny these days. I'm in NJ (RT 9 corridor) and will be going back to work soon. I'll be looking for a live-in, but way back when I had one years ago, the going rate (for 1 child) was about $400 + 20 for transportation costs to NY on her day off. This was about 4-5 years ago. Now I have 2 small children, so I don't know what the new rate would be. I don't want to insult anyone and offer a very low figure- Need to be educated! Please help if you have an idea! Thanks!
