Hire a Nanny or Childcare Services Specialist
(Live-In or Out)
Many families have demanding schedules or are two-parent working families and require full-time help with the children. Some families have a single parent as head of the household. Regardless of your dynamic, children who are not old enough to attend school require a caregiver whose focus is directed solely on the welfare and well-being of the child.
In the case of older children, light household chores and/or errands may be required. Most frequently, the nanny cares for the children in the family’s home and undertakes all duties related to the care of the children, including* domestic tasks relating to the children. They may or may not have had any formal training, though often have a good deal of actual experience.
