A nanny share is when a two families employ a nanny and share the cost of her salary. The nanny works for both families rather than for just one. Typically the nanny will care for the child of each family together. But in other circumstances, the nanny will split her time of child care between the two families to work around their schedules.
Your child benefits from having personal in-home care with the nanny all while building a friendship with the other child(ren). Families get to receive the benefit and care of a professional nanny all at HALF the cost.
