Live In Nannies

More About the "Live In Nannies" Option

3. Food for Live In Nannies
Families often worry too much about the question of food. Generally, however, nannies will eat with the family, or with the children when the parents are working, and it is normal for them to eat what the family eats. If your nannies come from another country, experiencing your cuisine is all part of the cultural adventure!

4. Having a 'Stranger' Living in the Home
This is of course very much a personal decision for parents, but most families find that the benefits of having live in nannies are much greater than the imagined loss of privacy. New Au Pair strongly recommends that a family takes the time to get to know potential nannies before they offer a job. It may take a little time, emailing and talking on the phone, but this is the best way to ensure that your new nanny becomes 'part of the family'. Our experience is that when nannies ask to leave early (or are asked to leave by the parents) it is often because the decision to employ them was made too quickly. We recommend that you ask your potential new nannies as many questions as possible, to get to know them as well as you can before choosing someone.

5. Additional Benefits of Live In Nannies
Don't forget, live in nannies will generally help around the home, which can reduce the time you have to spend cooking, cleaning or tidying up. Nannies can also be asked to do some babysitting in the evenings, giving you the chance to go out more. And sometimes, it's just useful having someone who will wait in for the washing machine repairman so that you don't have to!
