Cristina was a really good nanny for my little baby, she is punctual, passionate with her job, I was happy to meet her! She worked with me just for a month because personal reasons and unfortunately I left her go! But I recommend you 100% - Adalis
Rashmi is great with kids! She has a kind, calm demeanor and adapts to your needs fast. She handled my 2 boys (3-4mo, 4yo) with ease. The boys always asked when she’d be back. She became a part of our family! We were disappointed to see her move out of town but wish her the best! - Nisha
Miranyi is absolutely amazing! I was so lucky having her for 3 years. She is sweet, kind, patient, honest, and trustworthy. She was amazing with my babys. You truly can't ask for more. She was a lifesaver to me!! Thank you so much for all the love and years, we miss her very much. Thank you for a job well done Manyi! - Diego and Veronica Marin
To understand if a live-in nanny is right for you, it’s best to start by assessing your family’s needs. Live-in nannies are best suited for families’ that need flexible, full-time, in-home child care as live-in nannies reside with the family that they care for. A live-in nanny offers support with housekeeping, errands and other household responsibilities, similar to mother’s helpers, au-pairs, and full-time nannies. However, the perk that live-in nannies offer that sets them apart from other types of nannies, is round-the-clock and emergency coverage. These instances, as well as your location and the nanny’s experience are some of the many factors to consider when deciding how much you should pay a live-in nanny.
When hiring potential live-in nannies, you should conduct interviews. Interviews are a great opportunity to get to know your live-in nanny candidates better. Here are some questions to consider asking:
When finalizing the details of your live-in nanny position, it’s important to make sure that everyone is on the same page. The easiest way to do this is to create a job offer for your live-in nanny position.
In your job offer, you should communicate the responsibilities and compensation for your live-in nanny position. In writing out the responsibilities of your live-in nanny, you might also choose to add some responsibilities that are specific to your families’ needs like if you expect your live-in nanny to travel with you and the details around travelling with your live-in nanny.
When considering what it means for your live-in nanny when you take vacation, you should also consider how you want to handle their vacation time, and other aspects of their compensation. This includes a live-in nanny salary, over-time, benefits, and any expenses like food and gas. And don’t forget to be clear about how and when you plan on paying your live-in nanny with a nanny payroll service or by yourself.
