Live-out nannies will typically work on a set schedule and number of hours, either part-time or full-time. They will come to the family’s home on specific days and at the end of the day, go back to their own home at an agreed time. This is a suitable arrangement if you require nanny assistance, but do not need someone living with you 24/7. The responsibilities of a live-out nanny include all aspects of caring for a child including play, activities, meal preparation, bathing, helping with homework and clothing needs.
Live-in nannies live within the home of the family and they will typically provide care on a full-time basis, with hours varying between 8-12 hours each day. This is a great choice if you want convenience and flexibility, and will strengthen the bond between your child and nanny. Live-in nannies have the same responsibilities as a live-out nanny but they can also prepare children for school, cook the children all meals, and perform night duties such as feeding. Families can also take the nanny on vacations and weekend trips when necessary.
Long-term permanent nannies generally work with a family on a consistent basis for three months or more either on a part-time or full-time basis. For example, having a nanny pick up and look after children after school or providing infant care whilst the parents are at work. They can either live-in with the family or live-out. This is an excellent arrangement for families who work throughout the day or are busy with other arrangements and need an extra pair of hands and support around daily family life.
