How to save on a nanny in Denver

If you’re looking for cheaper forms of child care, nanny shares are a great option to consider. Nanny shares typically benefit both nannies and families by allowing nannies to earn more while allowing families to pay less.

Each family in the nanny share pays about 2/3 of the going rate for a nanny which reduces the cost to the families but adds up to an increase to the nanny’s overall wages. For example, if the rate for a nanny is $20, each family would only pay about $13.20, while the nanny would earn $26.40 per hour.
