Sharing a nanny can save you money, make your kids more comfortable, and give you greater flexibility.
A nanny share allows you much greater flexibility than a day care center or group provider. Staying late at work? Need someone to take your child to swim lessons? Having another baby? These are all things nannies are typically able (and willing) to take on—even in a share.
A successful nanny share definitely takes a lot of advance planning and coordination, but it can be an excellent solution if you’re lucky enough to find the perfect nanny and a great family willing to share.
