A Nanny Share is when two or more families share one nanny. Typically the nanny and children will rotate between both houses, but in some cases childcare is provided at just one home. Nanny shares work best when the families live close to each other, have children the same age, have similar parenting methods, and are looking for childcare during the same hours.
Benefits of a Nanny Share:
- Affordability: ½ the cost of a nanny for both families and additional tax benefits available.
- Socialization: Built in socialization for the children. Often, life time bonds form at a young age.
- Additional Options: in case your nanny is sick, the parents involved in the nanny share can negotiate who will stay home with the children.
