Raising a family can be hard enough in your home country with family and friends nearby. Want to make it even more complicated? Try it as an expat in some foreign country without those helping hands.
One way to make your life much easier is hiring a nanny or au pair. Unfortunately for many of us, this is prohibitively expensive. In Los Angeles, a full time nanny would cost upwards of $30,000 a year.
We wondered, what are childcare costs and where could we afford a full time nanny? To see what kinds of places it would be possible, we’ve pulled together a list of 12 cities around the world and a range of typical weekly costs for a full-time, live out nanny. A few of these cities offer extremely affordable childcare and may just motivate you to take the plunge to move overseas…or at least do some fun daydreaming.
So join us on a trip through the tropics, global cities, and the great white north as we explore what a full-time nanny costs around the world.
