Other than the J1 there is no visa for a "nanny" unless you can show that the job will have a definite ending date. Then there is the possibility of an H2B visa for up to one year with an extension possible for another year.

H2Bs are very difficult to do. You have to advertise the position and show there is no available US worker. They are generally used for seasonal housekeeping and labor jobs.

Here is a link to some FAQs to help you understand it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
