Employing a nanny is a life-changing decision, and one that is often the result of months of careful deliberation. However, once you make the leap and take on a nanny, you’ll wonder why you didn’t enlist one sooner.
To help you reach a decision on whether or not a nanny is right for you, here are a few signs that your family could benefit from their support.
Do you find that you’re spending your mornings rushing around chivvying the children along, hurrying them to get dressed and eat their breakfast, in order to drop them off at the childminders or nursery? Feeling guilty about the lack of quality time with the children and the fact that they spend little time in their own home?
By enlisting the support of a nanny you can be safe in the knowledge that the stress of trying to be a super parent is shared. A nanny will nurture a long-term bond with your child, in your home, so that your little ones can carry on their routine and enjoy continuity of care, with one-on-one attention from someone you trust.
The added value provided by a nanny with nursery duties such as washing, ironing, cooking taken care of, means you can savour every moment with your children, rather than rushing them to bed on an evening so you can tackle the chores.
When working a career around childcare, you probably rely heavily on the support of a nursery or childminder. However, when your child is in a room with 20 other children, it’s unlikely that they will receive the individual support and attention they need in those early years.
Investing in a nanny gives you peace of mind that your family have dedicated childcare, with undivided attention on their happiness, wellbeing and physical and lingual development.
Juggling a busy calendar without external support means that eventually, something’s got to give. Whether that be your eldest child forgoing piano lessons on a weeknight or your youngest missing out on swimming lessons in those crucial early years, you don’t want to jeopardise their quality of life because you simply can’t be in two places at once.
With the help of a nanny, you can ensure that each of your children pursue the hobbies and activities they enjoy, without worrying about conflicts in your calendar.
Continuity of care
Calling in favours from grandparents and friends can soon wear thin for all involved. After a long day at school, your children benefit from a familiar setting where they can relax, socialise, wind down, complete their homework, and have a good wholesome meal in their home environment.
Sharing your responsibilities with a nanny can be a daunting prospect at first, but the benefits of freeing up your time to focus on your family can be truly transformational.
By choosing an accredited nanny agency to find a suitable candidate for your children, you can have peace of mind that your new employee will save you time and stress, whilst giving your children the care and attention they so thoroughly deserve.
