Rotational (ROTA) Nannies
Do you lead an ever-evolving on-the-go lifestyle that’s more demanding than most? Are you looking for the highest level of care and consistency for your family? Does full-time care provided by one caregiver simply not cover the scope of flexibility that your family requires? A rotational, or ROTA, nanny might be the perfect option for you!
A ROTA nanny is a nanny who works as a part of a team of caregivers in a rotational schedule, such as one week on, one week off. As the leading experts in placing ROTA nannies, Westside Nannies creates top-quality, best-in-the-industry ROTA teams for families every single day. The go-to agency for families and ROTA nannies alike, our team has a reputation for being the best in the business and has a client list that spans heads of state, Forbes Top 10, Silicon Valley CEOs, Grammy award-winning artists, and A-list celebrities. ROTA nannies allow parents the peace of mind that comes with knowing they have consistent care for their children, no matter how busy life gets. With a team of ROTA nannies, your family is never without the exceptional care that they so deserve.
A ROTA nanny’s duties include all-things childcare and everything pertaining to the child’s well-being. Because of the nature of a ROTA schedule, travel is often included in a ROTA nanny’s duties, making this a particularly great option for families on the go. In addition to taking on all the duties of a full-time nanny, one of the key benefits of hiring a ROTA nanny is the specialized care they can provide. Highly sought-after ROTA nannies often have backgrounds in child development, child psychology, teaching, RIE, positive discipline, or Montessori.
Though the schedule and structure of a ROTA schedule can (and should!) be tailored to your family’s needs, ROTA nannies are typically part of a team of two nannies who work on a rotating schedule in 24-hour shifts. A popular ROTA schedule can look like one nanny working for one week in 24-hour shifts, followed by one week off, at which point the second nanny would work for one week in 24-hour shifts, and so on and so forth.
Our placement counselors will work closely with you to develop a competitive compensation package based upon your family’s needs. Rates for ROTA nannies vary greatly based on the nanny’s experience, education, and areas of expertise. Other factors for ROTA positions include schedule, duties, and the level of travel and flexibility required in the role. Current rates for ROTA nannies are between $30-50 per hour. In addition to their wages, most ROTA nannies receive the following benefits: two weeks’ paid vacation, paid holidays/sick days, and a health insurance stipend.
What Makes Our Nannies So Special?
Westside Nannies represents professional nannies who are experienced, trained, reliable, and proactive. We require our candidates to have at least 3 years of of professional childcare experience along with impeccable references.
Due-dilligence is at the heart of our placement process and safety is our #1 priority. Our trained recruiters are experts at digging into a candidate's background and thoroughly analyzing their work history and references. We look for top-notch candidates who leave an overwhelmingly positive and lasting impression.
In our industry, experience and education can be represented in many different forms; from formal degrees to 30+ years of experience. We represent nannies who simply have a passion for working with children, and many have proven their desire to work in childcare through their academics.
For our nannies, childcare isn’t just a “job” - it’s a labor of love. Most of our candidates began their careers as neighborhood babysitters and camp counselors in high-school, pre-school teachers or part-time nannies in college, and are now professional nannies. Our nannies love their jobs, and we think that’s pretty cool.
Whether it’s texting you a picture of your little one at the park or setting up a Skype session to say goodnight to your child when you are out of town, Westside Nannies candidates are forward-thinking, aware, and tech savvy.
We believe that a nanny’s moral and ethical character is just as important as what’s on her resume. Nannies are more than just caregivers - they are mentors and role models, and a direct reflection of your family’s values. We place an emphasis on recruiting candidates who display character traits such as loyalty, dependability, honesty, and respect.

What Our Families Are Saying
“The professionalism that has been demonstrated by your agency is remarkable. I have worked with top names in every industry and was blown away by the service - I never knew finding a nanny could be treated like the purchase of a luxury product. Kudos to you, WN”
“When my maternity leave ended and I was about to leave my first baby at home with a nanny, I was honestly petrified. You made this such a safe, easy process and for that, I am forever grateful.”
“Thank you for placing Stephanie with us! She has been absolutely amazing and I don’t know how we ever managed without her. The girls love her and not a day goes by without Stephanie planning a fun art project or an exciting outing. She also jumps in to help me with dinner and organizing - a true gem. We’re referring everyone to you! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!”
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the service that Westside Nannies provides. From their prompt initial response to working with their staff to find the ideal nanny for our 2-year-old son…it was all such a pleasure! When Brooke walked in, my son, who normally doesn’t get excited about mama leaving, couldn’t stop saying “bye mom, bye dad” and waving at us. She even put him to sleep the first day and I honestly didn’t think that could happen – simply amazing! I recommend Westside Nannies to everyone with kids!”
“Westside Nannies has some of the most professional and highly qualified nannies I have ever seen. They are organized. sensitive to employers and a joy to work with! I refer to them all the time and use thir services myself.”
