Have you considered accepting a full time nanny job outside of the country? Whether you live just a few miles from the border and plan to commute back and forth, or live hundreds of miles away from the prospective employer and need to work as a live-in nanny, there are things you need to know.
The first thing you should do is a Google search for the federal website of the country in which you want to work. There, you'll find information for out-of-country nanny positions including specific details on the country's requirements for non-resident employees. Finding a nanny job will be easier if you broaden your horizons, just be sure to do your research carefully about the city or town where you'll be moving, what rights and responsibilities you'll have as a temporary citizen of that area, any immunization requirements, etc. Of course, once you find a nanny job out of country, you'll need to apply for a work visa.
At first it might seem like a lot of work, but a family interested in hiring you as their nanny, should be able to provide guidance and assistance. If you can't afford the travel expenses involved in moving to your new place of employment, the hiring family might be able to help. For example, they might send you enough advanced pay to cover your moving expenses and then deduct a certain amount of money from your pay check over a period of time to pay them back.
So, if you find a family you're interested in working with, don't let their geographical location stop you from applying. There are lots of resources available to help you get where you need to go.
