Our family is exploring the option of a nanny. We currently have a son turning 2 in October and a baby girl due in 3 weeks.
We'd be looking for some help with our son 1-2 days a week while I am on maternity leave, and then watch both kids three days a week once I'm back to work in December. My in-laws cover two days a week, but they take semi regular visits to Florida, so we would occasionally need our nanny to cover four or five days a week depending on the days they were gone. The hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 PM, and I am employed as a school psychologist, so we follow a school calendar as far as days off for me (Christmas, Easter, Etc).
We would prefer for someone to come to our house, but would be consider taking our kids to someone else's house if we were comfortable with the set up and safety.
