Nanny Service

Finding a Nanny Service

Nanny service is something that many upper class and upper middle class families choose as an alternative to child day care services outside of their home.  Although the service is not only available to the wealthy it seems that so far they are among the only people who have taken advantages of the services.  Nanny service employees may live in your home or live outside of your home depending on their situation and your situation.  Unlike au pairs nanny services may staff local domestic child minders or foreign workers. Nannies are usually responsible for child care in the absence of the parents where as au pairs are often all around domestic workers taking care of household chores as well as children.  Generally Nannies are paid in actual money or a mixture of money and  room and board if they are live in care givers.  There are nanny services for every family type and every budget.

When you look at the monthly cost of full time day care services for your family and the cost of a live in or live out nanny service, you are likely to find that the prices are very similar.  This is a little known fact that many middle class working people have either overlooked or not yet realized.  If you have two or more children who need care you can easily be spending a thousand dollars or more on day care services in a facility.  You can often find a live in nanny for a similar price after deducting their room and board for a live in nanny.

Your live in or live out nanny service employee will almost always be female unless you request otherwise (extremely rare to find a male nanny), and will likely be available for additional services while minding your children in your home. In some cases nanny services can include assistance with home work, and any other activities that involve your children such as doctors office visits, parent teacher interviews, children’s sporting events, and some nannies are even taken on vacation with their host families to help care for the children on vacation.  Usually a nanny is treated as if they are a member of the family in front of others as this helps the children develop the level of respect they need in order to listen to and follow instructions from the nanny service.

Nanny Service is something that is affordable for just about any type of family.  In many cases you customize the type of services that your nanny provides to ensure her fees will remain manageable.  You can take part time or full time or live in nanny services.  Whatever you think will best met the needs of your family.  Nanny services can help pair you with a nanny of just about any age from eighteen to a senior citizen.  The nanny services offered across the United States are truly amazingly customizable so you should be able to find the perfect service for yourself and your family
