At Exclusive Nanny Group, we strive to help parents find the right person to care for their children. We understand that parents want someone they can trust, who will nurture their child's mind and heart and who understands and respects their family's unique dynamic, culture and values. For this reason, we only hire highly-qualified, educated nannies and provide a comprehensive matching process.
Long-term nannies can be either a full-time or part-time nanny. The main differentiation between long-term and short-term nannies are contract lengths. Long-term nannies typically work with a family for a year or more. Whereas, short-term nannies, such as NCS and Summer nannies, work with the family for less than a year.
To abbreviate, long-term nannies can be both full or part-time but are expected to work continuously throughout the year.
Full-time nannies work 35+ hours per week, where as part-time nannies work 18-34 hours per week.
Summer Nanny (Late May/Early June through August)
Summer nannies are ideal for families with children of all ages that are looking for daily care assistance with their children’s summer activities.
A summer nanny can provide full-time or part-time care.
Our summer nannies come from a variety of backgrounds. Some of our summer nannies are college students with previous childcare experience; others are college students perusing degrees in early childhood education. Others are qualified teachers seeking seasonal employment and still others are professional nannies.
Depending on your needs, you may wish to hire a summer nanny with lifeguard certification who can safely monitor your children at the pool or you may prefer a summer nanny who is teacher qualified to develop and execute a summer academic plan for your child.
For parents who want to customize their children’s summer, rather than sending them off to multiple sessions at camp, a summer nanny can host playdates, arrange age-appropriate adventures and help to create a fun and memorable summer experience for your children with flexibility.
Newborn Care Specialist
A Newborn Care Specialist usually starts with a family on the day they bring baby home from the hospital or the day of home birth and stays typically for up to 3-6 months to guide and educate new parents and offer hands-on care to the newborn(s) to help establish feeding, routine, and healthy sleep habits.
A newborn care specialist goes through extensive training and guides parents on how to care for their infants. These specialists have a wealth of knowledge and frequently share resources with new parents. A newborn care specialist works day or night to help with feeding, burping, changing, soothing, sleep solutions and more.
There are lots of options on how to get trained as a newborn care specialist. Curriculum usually includes things like this:
soothing, crying and swaddling
sleep conditioning and training
multiples and poop and scheduling
reflux and colic
warning signs and chemicals in a baby's world
ailment and safety
baby blues and postpartum psychosis
death of an infant, failure to thrive and a baby's mind
In a typical nanny share, two families employ one nanny, sharing the cost of their salary. Most nannies working in a share watch all the children together at once, and alternate between houses, but many families work together to come up with a schedule tailored to their specific needs. Since both families are contributing to the nanny’s pay, the nanny is usually able to earn more than they would make working for a single family.
While the cost-effectiveness of a nanny share is what usually draws parents in, there are other benefits of sharing a nanny that are just as important. A nanny share offers the socialization that you typically don’t find with a private nanny, along with the one-on-one attention and flexibility that is hard to come by at a day care facility. It really can be the best of both worlds.
Each family typically pays two-thirds of a nanny's hourly rate based on what you would pay on your own.
For example, a nanny in your area makes $25/hour working for a single family. Then you and your nanny share family would each pay about $18-19/hour for a total of $31-$33/hour. You are also required to pay your nanny time and a half for hours worked over 40 in a week.
