Nanny Share

We think nanny or babysitting services should be appealing to the children and pocket-friendly to the parents. So, being mindful of your needs and those of the children, we had created the nanny share option – which is only described as the best of both worlds – combining the traditional nanny care and daycare services.
Nanny share arrangements can help to reduce the costs of childcare, but it can also be a good way of allowing an only child to socialise with other children without going to nursery. It can also increase your chances of finding the perfect nanny, particularly if you are only looking for childcare for a few days a week or for a few hours at one time.
Nanny shares can benefit you in a number of ways:

  • Two or three families share the nanny all the time, so the nanny cares for all children at the same time.
  • The nanny looks after one family some of the time and the other family for some of the time.
  • The families can divide the time equally, so the nanny goes to one home for half the week, and the other home for the rest of the week.
How does it work?
Nanny share allows up a small group of family friends, to pool resources and engage a single nanny for their children. For best results, we limit this service to 1 nanny: 5 children. This flagship service provides attentive care to your kids and helps them to spend time interacting with friends in a small but conducive environment. An assigned nanny will provide the children with entertaining activities that make them feel at home and also ensure their comfort and safety.

Who can I share a nanny with?

You can either share with someone you know, or with someone you don’t know. It helps if both families live locally. If you are going to share with a friend, then still ensure that it is a business relationship.

Greater flexibility in a nanny share – the advantages for many families:

  • Your children will have the best of both worlds. Almost individual care, but with other children for play and company
  • You have the flexibility of a nanny with lower costs
  • You will have additional backup if the nanny is ill – you could share the childcare between both families.
