get ready for school, take him to school 5 miles away, pick him up at 3 and then stay with him until I get home at 6pm, or take him swimming lesson etc. So nanny would actually work 6.30-9 and then 3-6. Don't need them during the day Would I just pay them for those hours, or work out some other payment plan? Will someone actually want to do this? Help please? All new to me!
Another point with split shifts is the travel expense. Unless a nanny lives very close to you it will not be worth the petrol/wear and tear of her car costs to do your job. For example if she lives ten miles away at 45 p per mile that is £18 per day! Fifteen miles away travel costs £27. So look local.
