Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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.

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! 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!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Alexandria, VA

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

Alexandria Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in Alexandria? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Alexandria?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in VA? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
