What’s a Nanny Share?
In Seattle, a nanny share usually involves two (or more) families, with compatible parenting styles, choosing to hire one nanny to manage childcare. Nanny shares are ideal for families with infants/toddlers, and families with a need for flexible child care hours.
What are the Advantages of Joining 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, as there are a lot of initial considerations to iron out. However, once a nanny share is off the ground, it’s an extremely cost-effective and beneficial arrangement for everyone involved.
Nanny share works particularly well for infants and toddlers, in part because childcare options are limited during this stage. Younger children benefit from interacting and building relationships with others their age, as well as the consistent and personalized care from a nanny. Additionally, a nanny share offers you the unique benefit of a network of families to not only allocate the salary of a nanny, but also to collaborate with as a village.
Who’s a Good Candidate for a Nanny Share?
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.
