Nanny-Share - An Affordable Alternative to Day Care

Are you looking for a day care alternative? If so, nanny-share may be the answer. How can nanny-share rates compare to day care rates? A nanny's salary may vary but will usually run about $500/$600 at 40 hours per week when she cares for one infant in the DC Metro area. Some nannies, not all may consider caring for two infants, working for two separate families in a nanny share to where her rate of pay per family would be between $250/$300 at 40 hours/week. Families may pay as much as $200 or more to place one infant in a in a day care setting in some locations found in the DC Metro area.It appears by participating in a nanny-share you can save substantially on the cost of hiring a nanny for your child care provisions but is it really the best choice for your family?

How Does Nanny-Share Work?

Nanny-share is where two families split the cost of employing the same nanny in one or separate households. Whichever home is designated for the nanny to report to work is considered the "host" home. A nanny-share can be offered on a part-time, full-time, live-in or live-out basis.

Nanny-share between two families work best when there is only one child per household, and the nanny works no more than 45-50 hours per week.

If families choose to share a nanny, it is important that they:
   ● be compatible with each other,
   ● have similar disciplining and parenting styles, and
   ● live or work close to each other.

Families who participate in a nanny-share will most likely receive more one-on-one attention for their children compared to having their children placed in group or day care settings. Nanny-share is cost effective for most parents and a sensible solution for families to consider when seeking quality child care for their children.
