Supporting families beyond the fourth trimester
The nanny-connect is an extension of postpartum support. While the first 3 months (the fourth trimester) of parenthood may feel the most challenging, it can become more overwhelming for families once it's time for parents to return back to work.
Making the decision to return to work after having a baby is always tough on parents. Over 50% or mother's return to work after maternity leave and need to find childcare, which isn't always easy-- between the long waitlist or going through hundred's of nanny applications, is just overwhelming. That's why we created "nanny-connect", to connect families with reliable and professional nannies in the DC metro area. We handle all the vetting and screening to make finding a nanny easy for you.

How Much is a Nanny?
Nanny rates vary and ultimately come down to what the parents can afford and minimum wage. However, it is important for families to understand that nanny rates are typically higher than daycare rates because nanny's are the sole provider of your child(ren) during work hours. They generally do not recieve certain benefits such as health and dental insurance or 401k plans; they're not always guarenteed a break; they may work longer hours and may be resposnisble for tasks that include laundry, meal preperation and errand runs. The rates included below are a guide, rates may be higher or lower, and are based on the number of children, responsibilities, and the nanny's experience and credentials.
