What is a nanny share?
A nanny share is where two families employ the same nanny to help with their childcare. The nanny generally looks after both families' children at the same time, but can also include hours where only one family's children are looked after.
Nanny shares come in all shapes and sizes and really depend on what works for each family. There's no need for both families' requirements to exactly match. Read all about the benefits of nanny share here.
"I love the flexibility of nanny share – we can increase or decrease our hours each week and our nanny has been great, we really fell on our feet with her."
Mum of two, Blackheath
How much does it cost?
For hours where the nanny looks after both families’ children (shared care hours) the cost for each family is £9 per hour.
For hours where the nanny looks after only one family’s children (sole care hours) the cost is £13 per hour.
