3 Reasons Why Parents Engage A Nanny

Having a family is one of life’s greatest joys! Children are the most precious and special gifts in our lives, and any parent would do anything for their kids. Parenting can be a challenge though, and if you’re reading this article you are probably wondering how a wonderful carer could suit your needs.

My name is Kasey Major, and I’ve been a professional nanny for 23 years. I’ve supported every kind of family structure and I’ve cared for so many beautiful children. It’s amazing that you’re thinking about a nanny, as it really will change your life for the better. Here are the main reasons why parents have engaged my services, and how their lives changed as a result!

My family needs some extra support

You may be a family of busy working professionals, trying to do all you can for your family while meeting deadlines at work. You could be parents running your own business and you need flexibility with care for your children. You may be a shift worker where daycare isn’t suitable. You may not have close friends or family nearby and need some extra support. You may be a single parent managing shared arrangements, or need help looking after the kids while you are at work. Even if you are staying at home to care for your children, a nanny will help your family.

A nanny will work alongside you to achieve the goals you have for your family. They become an extension of you. They will embody all the values and behaviours you want to instil in your beautiful children, and work with you to ensure your ideal caring environment is maintained.

I want my child to have personalised care

Speaking of values, you may be worried that your child is not getting the personalised care you desire at daycare or after-school care. Every child is unique and special, and you know your child’s needs better than anyone. This is where a nanny can add so much value to the growth of your child.

A nanny can observe and report on the behaviour of your children when you’re away, and together you can understand what behaviour to encourage and discourage. Nannies are wonderfully flexible with the educational activities they provide for children in their care. They can provide your children with a personalised program each day, which adjusts to their needs and is more flexible than what is provided with childcare or after-school care. Your children’s development will flourish overtime as the bond with a nanny grows.

I want my family to feel more connected

With how busy your life is, you may wish that your family is more connected. But because there are so many jobs that need to be done, you find you are spending your precious downtime running the household rather than spending quality time with your family.

A nanny will support you and your beautiful family. With time, they can understand what the family or the household needs, and add thoughtful touches to make things easier for you. If you like the house looking a particular way, a nanny can assist in putting things back in the way you like. Nannies are not cleaners, though some will be happy to discuss additional services. The priority of every nanny is the care of children, and with time they will create a peaceful and caring environment for your family to enjoy together.

Your Life Will Change With A Nanny

There are just so many benefits to having a caring, supportive nanny in your life. A nanny will provide your family with a reliable routine and will personalise the care they provide to every child. When you bring a nanny into your home, they will understand your family’s needs and in time will provide an enduring connection.

Supporting families is my passion, so if you need any help in your search to find a nanny I’m always here to help.
