Live In Nanny

Live in Nanny

A live in nanny provides childcare support for your children in their own home, and lives in your home.  The main benefits of hiring a live in nanny are:

  • A live-in nanny is cheaper than a live-out nanny, but provides the same one-on-one care
  • A live-in nanny is generally more flexible and can babysit a few evenings a week
  • A live-in nanny becomes part of the family

A live-in nanny can also travel with the family providing consistent care for your children.  If you are a family that travels a lot due to business or family, your live-in nanny can accompany you and provide all the care that you receive at home.

How a Live In Nanny can support your family

Most families employ a live in nanny to care for their children on average 10-12 hours per day, 5 days per week. Some families request a few evenings babysitting which can be included in the weekly salary. Normally live in nannies are in sole charge of your children, or sometimes provide support alongside the parents, acting as an extra pair of of very reliable hands! There are huge benefits to hiring a live in nanny, such as having someone available more often and they become part of the family unit.
