If you’re looking for some relief from your every day parenting duties, or work part-time yourself, a part-time nanny may be just the solution for you. A part-time nanny will help out with your children during a specified timeframe.
Some part-time nannies will work for 10-12 hours per day for up to four days a week. Some will work mornings only. Some will work during the evening, or only on weekends. We will help you find the ideal part-time nanny who will fit in with your family’s schedule and needs.
What a part time nanny does
The general responsibilities of a part-time nanny include:
- Helping your children get ready for school
- Preparing meals and snacks
- Transporting your children
- Putting your children to bed
- Helping with homework
- Providing mental stimulation
- Doing children’s laundry
- Reinforcing appropriate discipline
- Keeping the household tidy
We will listen to all of the tasks you expect from a part-time nanny, and we will find a nanny who will not only fit your family’s needs, but will also take on those responsibilities.
Is a part-time nanny right for you?
If you’re not sure if hiring a part-time nanny is the right step for you and your family, take a look at the following factors to consider:
Your job: Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or a parent with a job outside the home, you need to think about how your job is keeping you from taking care of your children. Maybe you need a part-time nanny to take care of your children after school until you come home from work. Maybe you need a nanny to help get your children ready for school while you get ready for work in the morning. Think about how a part-time nanny will help you achieve the right balance between work and family.
Your schedule: If you’re a stay-at-home parent, you might get overwhelmed sometimes. Being a stay-at-home parent is not an easy job. You have to take care of an infant, a child, or maybe multiple children, maintain the household, and run errands. It’s nearly impossible to do all three at the same time. If you hire a part-time nanny, you can focus exclusively on one task, may it be cleaning the house, running a few errands, or being with your children. Some part-time nannies are willing to take on housekeeping duties so you can spend some quality time with your children.
Your needs: Sometimes you just need a break! Get some “me” time when your part-time nanny comes and takes over the household. You might need a part-time nanny to keep yourself sane and well-rested.
Specialised part-time nannies
While any part-time nanny can tackle general nanny duties, a few part-time nannies strictly specialise in one role only, such as infant care or after school care. If you need a certain type of nanny with a specialised set of skills and qualifications, we’ll be more than happy to sit down with you and go over all the special skills and qualifications you’re looking for in a nanny.
