What is a ROTA Nanny?

A ROTA nanny, also known as a "rotational nanny," is a childcare professional who works in shifts with another nanny to provide 24/7 coverage for a family. The term "ROTA" refers to the rotation schedule that these nannies follow, often working two weeks on and two weeks off, or another agreed-upon schedule. This setup ensures that there is always a nanny available to care for the children, offering continuous support and flexibility for the family's needs. ROTA nannies are typically employed by high-net-worth families who require around-the-clock care and who appreciate the consistency and reliability of having a dedicated team of nannies.

The benefits of hiring a ROTA Nanny include:

  • Flexibility: Families can customize their schedules to include early mornings, evenings, weekends, and travel. 

  • Backup Coverage: The nannies work together to cover each other on sick and vacation days.

  • Reduced Burnout: Easing the burden by distributing responsibilities and ensuring the primary caregiver remains engaged and well-rested
