What is a nanny share?
A nanny share is when two families team together in a mutually beneficial arrangement, to employ a nanny jointly. The nanny cares for both family's children at the same time, either at one house consistently, or alternating between the two homes. Each family contributes half of the nanny's hourly wage, but remain separate employers. This helps to make employing a nanny a more affordable option, while still obtaining quality care for your children.
Benefits of a nanny share:
helps offset the financial cost of a nanny
socialization for your child(ren)
more one-on-one attention vs. daycare
convenience of in-home care
logistics of drop-off & pick-up that work for your family
consistency of care
relaxed sick policies vs. daycare
help with household work (laundry, dishes, tidying, ect.)
no waitlists vs. daycare
