Full-Time Nanny Care for Two Families
If you’re looking for ways to make childcare more affordable, consider a nanny share! How does it work? A nanny share is when two families share a full-time nanny and split the cost, allowing each family to save on child care expenses while the nanny enjoys a full time salary. Available for ages newborn to school-age, the benefits go beyond finances, providing the socialization of daycare with the one-on-one attention and flexibility of a private nanny. Everyday playmates teach children social skills such as sharing, adaptability, and compromise. It’s easy – simply apply with a friend, and our placement counselors will match you with the nanny that is right for you!
Nannies provide full-time care for two families, working alongside them to provide the individual care their children need. This goes beyond general supervision, ensuring children are happy, healthy, and thriving. While responsibilities vary depending on the household, they may include full care of the children (bathing, dressing, feeding), organizing fun, educational, and age-appropriate activities and outings, engaging in creative play, and transporting the children to and from school. Nannies will help create a schedule for the location of care.
Nannies generally work between 40-60 hours per week. Schedules vary greatly depending on the needs of the two families and the level of travel and flexibility required. Most nannies work 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday, accommodating a traditional work schedule. Whatever your needs, when you and a friend apply for a nanny share, our team of placement counselors will work with you and your sharing family to determine the schedule that would best suit your needs.
One of the benefits of a nanny share is affordability, allowing each family to pay 50% of the nanny’s salary. Rates vary greatly depending on the nanny’s experience, the position duties, preferred schedule, and the level of travel and flexibility required in the role. Our placement counselors will work closely with both families to develop a competitive compensation package that is right for you. Current rates for professional nanny-share nannies are between $30-$40 per hour, allowing each family to pay as little as $15.00 per hour. In addition to their wages, most full-time nannies receive the following benefits: 2 weeks paid vacation, paid holidays/sick days, and a health insurance stipend.
What Makes Our Nannies So Special?
Safety first! YesBabyCare is diligent in researching candidates so you don’t have to. We require a criminal background check, analyze work history, thoroughly interview references, and conduct an internet screening.
In the childcare industry, experience and education can be represented in many forms. Some of our candidates have formal degrees, some have more than 30 years of experience, but all have passion for working with children. All of our nannies are at least 21 years of age and are required to have a current infant and child CPR and First Aid certification, a high school diploma, and a minimum of 3 years of experience.
At YesBabyCare, we hold nannies to a high standard, requiring candidates to have at least 3 years of professional childcare experience. We represent nannies who are well-trained, dependable, motivated, and who have demonstrated a love for their chosen profession.
We all know that children learn by observing adults, and at YesBabyCare, we understand that nannies are more than just caregivers – they are mentors and role models. We consider a nanny’s moral and ethical character to be just as important as what’s on her resume, and take special care in recruiting candidates who are honest, respectful, dependable, and kind.
YesBabyCare candidates are tech savvy, using modern conveniences to enhance their work. And with technology today, the possibilities are endless! What would make your day better? A picture of your little one at the park? A Skype session to say goodnight to your child when you are out of town? Our nannies can make it happen.
One thing that characterizes all our nannies is a passion for working with children. To them, it isn’t just a “job” – it’s a lifelong labor of love. Most of our candidates began their careers as early as high-school, working as neighborhood babysitters or camp counselors, and are now professional nannies. Our nannies love their jobs, and we think that’s pretty cool.
