Live in Nanny
A live in nanny provides childcare support for your children in their own home and lives in your home as their main residence. The main benefits of hiring a nanny that lives with you are:
- A live-in nanny is typically more flexible if you require variable hours, and they can also babysit a few evenings
- A live-in nanny becomes a member of the family providing stability for your children, especially if you work shifts or travel frequently for work.
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 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 8-12 hours per day, 5 days per week. Some families request a few evenings babysitting which can be included in the weekly salary.
Normally, nannies are in sole charge of your children but can also provide support alongside the parents, acting as an extra pair 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.
