The Advantages of Hiring a Nanny

Flexibility. Life is unpredictable. You never know when a project will require you to work late, travel out of town or when one of your children is going to come down with the stomach bug, which always happens on the one day you can't stay home. Nanny care is the most flexible childcare option. When you need care, your nanny will be there. There is no scrambling for last minute coverage.

Personalized and customized care.In addition to providing personalized and customized childcare, nannies can help your household run more smoothly. With a nanny, you don't have to worry about transporting your children to and from activities or leaving work to bring your child the lunch you forgot to pack. Your nanny has that covered.

Peace of mind.  When you hire a nanny, you're the boss. Your children don't have to adapt to a rigid daycare routine or develop bonds with multiple caregivers. With a nanny, you get to hand select your children's childcare provider. Having someone you can trust and can rely on is a huge stress reliever. Whatever demands life places on you, you can rest assured that your children are safe and well cared for.

Additional help around the house.  Having someone to help with the housework can be invaluable. Nanny/housekeepers handle childcare duties as well as housekeeping duties, like cleaning, cooking and doing the laundry. When seeking a nanny/housekeeper, be upfront about the duties you'll require. If your children are younger, you may need to provide separate periods of time for your nanny to perform her housekeeping related tasks.
