Why join a Nanny Share?

More and more families are choosing to join nanny shares due to their many advantages, including economic, social, and scheduling conveniences. A nanny share can be delicate to organize, however, once a nanny share is off the ground, it’s an extremely cost-effective and beneficial arrangement for everyone involved.

Nanny shares work particularly well for infants & toddlers, in part because childcare options are limited during this stage. Younger children benefit from socialization, as well as the consistent and personalized care from a nanny. Additionally, a nanny share offers the unique benefit of allocating the cost of a nanny and creating a “village”.

Nanny Share Candidates

It’s essential the nanny be chosen carefully. Managing a nanny share is a lot of fun, but experience is crucial. Starling Agency is able to recommend qualified nannies that are ideal candidates to join a nanny share.
