What is a nanny?
A nanny is a child carer who works alongside the parents or guardians. They are fully involved in the physical, mental, social development and well-being of the child in their care. They become very much a part of the family as they are present in the day-to-day aspects of a family's routine. It is important for the nanny to have a close and trusting relationship with the child/ren, and that it is established through patience and consistency.
Nannies can be employed under a variety of circumstances. Below are the nanny services we can help provide to you. If you have any special requests, or are uncertain which one suits you best, please don't hesitate to call us; we would be happy to accommodate your needs.
Full-time nannies are professional educators who, alongside parents, offer an environment conducive to the growth and learning of their children in their care. Regularly, full-time nannies work between 35 to 48 hours per week and can live-in or out, depending on the needs of the family.
Part-time nannies are a great addition to your family when your children are attending school full-time, and you need an extra pair of hands. Generally, they work less than 35hrs per week depending on what your family is looking for.
Holiday Nannies are hired on a short-term placement, typically between 1 week to a few months at a time.They provide you with an extra pair of hands while you enjoy your vacations away from home, or if you need temporary help in the course of your full-time nanny’s paid time off.
Short-term nannies may be hired to replace your current nanny who is on extended leave for sickness, maternity, parental leave etc. These contracts are offered on as a CDD (fixed-term).
They provide the same care that your normal nanny would fulfil in her position.
