I am a working mom of 3 lovely princesses. I am hoping to share my nanny who from the first day we met has been a joy to my family. She is honest, caring and definitely follows instructions. My girls adore her; there's nothing as good as knowing tour kids are in safe hands when you are away. I am looking to share my nanny to reduce my monthly bills.

Hello I’d like to offer my home for a Nanny share with another family. I have identified a few potential nannies to start on November 4th. I have a 6 month old boy. I have asked the nanny to be available from 8 AM to 6 PM, M-F. Please message me if you are interested in sharing the cost at a very affordable rate in a more private environment than a daycare with another baby to socialize with.

I am located in Kingstowne, Alexandria VA off of Beulah street.

Hi, I am Maria , mother of an adorable one-year old girl. I am looking for an experienced and loving full-time nanny, available to work Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5/6 p.m., possibly in a nanny share agreement. Ideally, the nanny share would include only one other child. The nanny would be taking care of my daughter, prepare her food, take her out for walks and nearby activities, and provide a language-rich environment that encourage her development. Knowledge of Italian would be preferred but not required.

Hello! We have the space, we have the nanny, and we are looking for another adorable kiddo to be part of our share! The family we currently share our nanny with no longer requires care thanks to a really great flexible job so we are hoping to find another family to join our Del Ray share with availability to start in mid-November.

Our nanny has many years of experience and has downright glowing reviews from her previous employers (and us!). Both children in our share get so excited to see her in the morning and show her genuine affection. She baby wears around the house, teaches baby sign language, is CPR certified, is extremely receptive to parent requests and feedback, and is always up for taking the kids out into the neighborhood for walks and playtime. No matter how stressful caring for two infants must be, she is never anything other than composed and pleasant.

A little bit about us – we currently live in Del Ray with our first child, an eight month old boy. Although we are first-time parents, we aim to be as chill, low drama, and go-with-the-flow as one can be while taking care of a small human who tends to not sleep very much. We have loved hosting the share at our home and are happy to continue to do so for the future share partnership. We have felt so lucky having our son cared for by our nanny and hope to find another child soon who will benefit from her care and experience.

Please let me know what questions you have or if you would like more information. We hope to meet you soon!
