Hiring a Nanny Can Save Families Money, Provide Many Benefits

Adrienne Walkowiak, Publicist

Norfolk, NE- Hiring a nanny is a convenient, affordable option that can actually save families significant money over other childcare options.

"In these tough economic times, we're all being cautious with our spending. Parents may be worried about hiring a nanny, thinking it's too luxurious in light of the current economic downturn. But in reality, hiring a nanny can actually save families money over other childcare options," says Candi Wingate, childcare expert and founder of and

Nannies can save families money in the following ways:

  • Being less expensive than many day care centers. If you have two or more children, it's often more cost-effective to hire a nanny, as daycares charge per child and will be more costly than paying a nanny to come to your home.
  • Providing "nanny sharing" options: having one nanny watch kids from several families simultaneously or having one nanny work part-time for two different families, spending a few days with each family. These options help reduce costs, while still providing the benefits of having a nanny.
  • With a nanny, parents don't have to leave work - potentially missing a day's pay - when their child is sick, like they would with day care. Your nanny can stay home with your ill children while you work.
  • Saving money on food. Your nanny can prepare nutritious homemade meals, reducing the number of take out and/or restaurant meals that you eat. Restaurant meals are more expensive - and often less healthy - than home cooked meals.
  • Reduced healthcare costs, as you may have healthier children if you keep them out of daycare and away from other kids' germs.

"Families who go online at to hire a nanny can save thousands of dollars over those who use nanny placement agencies," Wingate added.
