I am expecting my first child in February 2014.  My husband and I are not really interested in large daycare centers and are leaning more towards in-home care or a nanny share.  I'm having a hard time finding resources to search for these things.  There's some stuff of Craigslist, but overall it seems lacking.  Do any of you have suggestions for linking up with people in similar situations?  I know for in-home care most providers don't know their availability this far in advance, but I'm still looking for any leads I can get for the time being.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated!

I would try either care.com or sittercity.com, both are paid sites so you sort of screen out the weirdos that way, and you can access background chrcks and references too.

I'm interested in this, as well!  We are expecting our first child in March and would like to find a nanny share situation.  Unfortunately, we have no idea where to begin and our friends with babies aren't interested in nanny-sharing right now.  We live in Wheat Ridge, just west of downtown Denver.  Would love suggestions!

Thanks Andrea.  I posted on both Care.com and SitterCity.com.  Haven't upgraded to paid membership yet, but I have received several applications.

 

Amy - these are probably your best bet.  And you can also look on Craigslist - though you have to sift through a lot of crap on there.  We are in south Denver and I'm looking for care there or in the Stapleton / Aurora areas.  Good luck!

We are interested in a nanny share in Denver as well. I have seen a few ads on Craigslist and in the Denver Post. I also found this site: www.nannyshare.us with a few ads.  We are looking for a part time share near the University Hills area beginning in October.

 

Good luck to you!

Nanny Share

Hello,

We live just north of Sloan's Lake and have a great nanny currently who has been part time with us. We need her full time beginning September but need a family to join us. Our daughter will be one at the end of July. Let me know if you are interested and we can discuss further. Thanks!

Hi!! I am looking for part-time care for my 21 month old daughter and am interested in sharing a nanny. Have you found a family to share or are you still looking?
