Hiring a nanny and welcoming that person into your home and into the life of your children is a big deal.

Here at Planet Nanny, we get it.

We want to make it as simple as possible so you can get back to being a snuggling, fort-building, story-telling, monster-fighting, world-saving super parent.

Hiring a Full-Time Nanny

How it works:

To start: Please send us a message of interest and someone will be in touch within 48 hours to discuss your families needs and what you are looking for in a nanny. After that, hire a great nanny is 5 easy steps.

1. Match: We will match your family with pre-screened caregivers that fit your families wants, needs and requirements.

2. Interview: Do a phone interview to see if you and the nannies click. Following a successful phone interview we will help you arrange an in person interview in your home or other location.

3. Select: Make a great connection! Review your candidates background check, references and credentials.

4. Negotiate: We can help you and the nanny come to a great agreement for a happy and successful business relationship. We will happily help negotiate an agreeable contract or provide the framework for a contract so that both family and nanny are supported and protected.

5. Enjoy: Enjoy happy children and a calmer household with your new professional in-home nanny.

Children in a nanny-share have a built in buddy while parents enjoy the reduced cost of high quality childcare. 

We are excited that you have decided to start a nanny-share. At this time, we are only helping families that are already connected to find a shared caregiver for their children. 

Friends, co-workers, family members- all make great nanny-share partners. Your children enjoy low-ratios and built in playmates while families enjoy superior childcare for 2/3 the normal hourly rate to hire an exceptional nanny on your own. 

How does a Nanny-share work?

Two families share the services of one nanny ideally during the same or similar hours.

The families decide which family home will host the childcare.

Both families pay 2/3 of the nannies normal hourly wage per hour during the nanny-share with applicable overtime.

Nanny to receive full normal hourly wage when just working for one family. 

Each family employs the nanny separately and pays her as a household employee in addition to following applicable tax laws.


Starting a Nanny-share can be daunting but it doesn't have to be.
