Current Nanny share rates?

Hi, all.  Like so many others, we are having an impossible time finding daycare for our son.  We are holding out for the (slim) chance we find a daycare slot by May, but also planning for the very real possibility of a nanny share.  I saw the 2018 post about nanny share rates, and was wondering what folks are paying now (i.e., has the pandemic dramatically changed rates).  Thanks for any information you have!

Moderator Note: BPN conducted a nanny pay survey this past summer.  See 2021 Nanny Survey

We pay $35/hr across two families, for 35 hrs/week.

We started paying our nanny in south berkeley $15 an hour and now we pay her $16 an hour.  We share her with one other family who pays the same.  Her single child rate is $25 an hour.  There are definitely daycare's available but it depends where and what you're looking for.

Like you, I had a really hard time finding preschool for my son for this past fall. Most of the schools to which I applied or filled out contact sheets never even got back to me, let alone tell me they were full. We finally got into the New School in North Berkeley and we're very happy there. I don't know where you're located, but the New School has some openings right now.

I am looking now and am getting quoted anywhere from $30-38 an hour for two children. Most often I’m seeing $35. This is a notable increase from 2018, in addition finding someone is competitive. Good luck!
