No doubt, you have heard the age-old proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” But what if you don’t have a village? These days, most of us don’t have our family or close friends nearby. You’re not alone, and Via The Village believes you don’t have to do it alone.
We’ve create a platform for families and nannies to come together to build your own personalized villages within your local community to find safe, reliable childcare through your trusted connections. Nannies can do the same as you search for desirable employment relationships.
The average family struggles with the rising cost of childcare, while the average nanny often has to settle for less than an ideal wage. By facilitating nanny sharing, Via The Village helps make quality childcare more affordable, while helping compensate nannies better.
With nanny shares, families save thousands per year, while nannies make thousands more! Plus the children are happy because they get a little playmate. Everybody wins!
For those who are not currently seeking a nanny, nanny share, or employer, Via The Village helps build your childcare community in other ways:
Families can find other families near them for childcare exchanges, kiddie carpools, play dates or new neighborhood friendships. Nannies can find other nannies near them for play-date meetups and also for backup when they need time off. And you can find yet more support through our shared blog and community forum.
