No! Nanny shares come in all shapes and sizes and really depend on what works for each family. For example, two families could share one nanny for all 5 days a week, or one family could employ the nanny for 5 days a week while the other family only employs them for 3 of those days.
However, in order for the arrangement to be classified as a nanny share there must be some hours that are shared by both families. Bear in mind, for the hours that aren’t shared, one family would be paying the standard £13.50-£16.50 per hour rate, as opposed to the £9 per hour shared care rate.
