Should I advertise sooner?

Hi all
We'll need a nanny to start next summer. I've heard we should advertise 3-4 months' in advance but I wondered whether it's worth advertising sooner? might some people look this far in advance? Am anxious about trying to conduct lots of interviews in a rush.
Thanks.

Some people may look earlier, I started looking in Feb/March for a job to start in July/Aug/Sept. The agency advised me to start looking in May/June but as it so happened a job came in mid-March with a July start date.
In my view there is no harm in starting looking in Feb/March but before then is probably too early though certainly think about creating the job description and think about the salary on offer.

Thanks, nannynick, so maybe in the new year for a July/August start date?
