Kyla has been a spectacular caregiver for our children! She is responsible, dependable, trustworthy and kind. She is an honest and good person with a heart of gold...and I NEVER worry when she’s taking care of our kiddos. Most importantly, our children love her and always get excited when she’s coming over to watch them. I highly recommend Kyla! - Ashley
Kyla became instant family! She goes above and beyond! Our kids love her! Even though our kids are now old enough to not need a nanny anymore they would love nothing more then to hang out with her! - Kim
Kyla has cared for my 4 young kids for about 5 years. We were referred to her by my sister. She is our most trusted and capable sitter. All my kids love and respect her. Her style is calm, loving but firm, and very age-appropriate (she uses very different tactics for each of my kids, ages 18 months to 8 years) and each of the kids respond so well. She’s a natural. - Lindsay

To understand if a part-time nanny is right for you, it’s best to start by assessing your family’s needs. Part-time nannies are best suited for families’ that need less than 35 hours of childcare per week.
A part-time nanny can offer support with housekeeping, errands and other household responsibilities, similar to mother’s helpers, au-pairs, and live-in nannies. These instances, as well as your location and the nanny’s experience are some of the many factors to consider when deciding how much you should pay a full-time nanny.
If you’re looking to save on the cost of a part-time nanny, you can try a nanny share. In a nanny share, you split the costs of a part-time nanny with another family. Alternatively, you could create a nanny share to create a full-time nanny position by having two families who want part-time child care. Beyond costs, there are other considerations in deciding between a part-time nanny and a part-time nanny share. It is important to think about the additional responsibilities your family carries as well as the part-time nanny when making this decision.
When finalizing the details of your part-time nanny position, it’s important to make sure that everyone is on the same page. The easiest way to do this is to create a job offer for your part-time nanny position.
