Our nanny wants to start a nanny share taking care for her grandchild
Our nanny might want to start taking care of her infant granddaughter together with our 15 month son. She is currently just watching our son and we initially spoke about a possible nanny share but had no luck finding a good fit. It has now been about 8 months and she stopped insisting on a nanny share. We think its because her daughter just had a baby and her maternity leave will be up in Sept. We would be hosting since we are not willing travel and her daughter's work is very close to our home. This seems to me like a nanny care situation. Would it be fair to start paying her at a split nanny share rate? instead of the single child rate that we pay her now? This is sort of complicated since she will be making the arrangement with her daughter and she might not want to charge her to care for her own grandchild. I don't think its fair to pay her a single child rate if her attention will now be split between two children. I am new to working with a nanny and I want to make sure its a fair situation given we will be hosting and she will be taking care of two children now. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
