There are several different types of Houston nanny services that we offer. Depending on your needs in both time commitment and type of care, families fall under several types of nanny care:

Nanny Types

Nanny

Our Houston nannies are caring, highly-experienced, and professional caregivers seeking full-time work with a consistent schedule and long-term commitment. Our nannies are trained to design and implement daily curriculum for your child, encourage their development, and plan entertaining games, arts and crafts, and other enlightening projects. Our nannies’ background is a combination of education, nanny and/or teaching experience, and continuing education hours. Our Houston Nannies typically make $22-26/hour (minimum) + employer portion of payroll taxes.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.

Nanny Manager

Houston nanny managers perform additional duties that go beyond care of the children, and often include a household component. This may include transporting your children to/from activities or school, organizing after-school activities, running errands such as grocery shopping, light tidying (dishwasher/dishes, wiping down counters, sweeping up after meals, organizing, etc.), and basic meal prep (chopping, boiling water, pre-heating oven, assembling ingredients for easy preparation). The typical compensation for our Houston Nanny Managers is $23+/hour + employer portion of payroll taxes.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.

Family Assistant

This is the title we often use for nannies when children are a bit older, and true “childcare” responsibilities have dwindled. These roles tend to revolve around household management, driving kids to activities, supervising homework, errands, etc. The typical compensation for these positions is $25+/hour + employer portion of payroll taxes.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.

Nanny Share / Nanny Manager Share

The duties of a Nanny or Nanny Manager are the same as above, but there are two families involved. (Mom’s Best Friend does not match the families – two families come to us with a unified request.) The families typically have a total of 2-3 children, and have chosen this option for reasons including proximity, socialization, and cost savings (the hourly pay and placement fee are both split). Nanny Shares make about $5 extra per hour because they are reporting to multiple families and sometimes must alternate locations.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.
