Benefits of Hiring a Nanny
Having a consistent caregiver in the comfort of the children’s own home.
Trustline background check certified. (As required by California Law for all nanny agencies)
Children having that developmentally crucial one-on-one time.
Teaming with your nanny to effectively help raise your children in the way you feel appropriate.
FLEXIBILITY. Part of a nanny’s job is to be flexible as they are aware that one may get caught in traffic, etc. This relieves a lot of stress for the parents.
Stress is also relieved as the parent does not have to rush out of the home trying to get the children to another location each morning. This can be a very challenging and chaotic start to the day for everyone.
If your child is sick or there is a holiday, your nanny always has this covered.
Children cared for by a nanny catch less sicknesses. They are not exposed to the many germs that large groups of children bring into a traditional day care environment.
Light housekeeping. Taking care of your children is top priority but if the nanny has down time they can help around the house: Organizing toys, dishes, laundry, starting dinner and much more. This gives you time to focus on your children when you get home.
If you have pets, the nanny can help by being company to them too, feeding, and even exercising them.
Your children will be exposed to more variety of activities such as the zoo, Kindermusik, sports, parks with story time, art classes, etc…
