A Nanny could be the Perfect Childcare Fit for your Family

Having a nanny in your home has become a viable and affordable option for many New Zealand families. There is no place like home for new-borns and toddlers who require one-on-one interaction along with stable and reliable role models and routines. A nanny interacts with children one-on-one, focusing on children’s individual needs whilst encouraging their strengths and intellectual growth. A nanny can help with the smooth running of your household, providing care that is consistent with your parenting style, and helping with household tasks and after school care.

    A nanny in your own home can be the next best thing to staying at home with your children.

Less Stress

In many New Zealand households mornings are chaotic. Adults are trying to get ready for work; children need to be fed; dressed and ready to leave; often before they are even properly awake! The dishwasher needs stacking and the washing is still in the basket! Research has shown that children do best in calm and unhurried environments, yet we are often exposing our children to huge amounts of stress every morning. Employing a Nanny can take the stress right out of those busy times. You can leave for work calmly and confident that your children will be well cared for in their home environment. The dishwasher and washing will also be attended to!

In Your Home

Rich, loving relationships are crucial for children's brain development, particularly in the first 3 years of life. A Nurture Nanny provides these relationships. Normal routines are maintained, and home environments offer a relaxing pace and flexibility for outings like visits to local parks and libraries. Your children can continue with swimming having lessons and regular playdates with friends. Your nanny will also assist with the running of your household. Afterschool care can be covered by the Nanny giving your school age children a chance to unwind and relax after a busy school day. Whether you are returning to work, having twins or triplets or just need a hand at home, a Nanny could be the best option for you and your family

Your Routine

Many of our Nannies are able to be flexible with their work times to accommodate changes in parents’ work schedules. This can also include weekends (by arrangement). Children’s schedules can also be catered for - changing sleep patterns, allowing children to rest when they need to.

Environment for Growth

Employing a Nanny ensures children are treated as individuals. Their interests and passions can be followed, with opportunity for trips and adventures. They can rest when tired, eat when hungry and explore in their own way and time. As a parent you can be assured that the family environment, values, and guidelines are upheld.

Health Benefits

Keeping children happy and healthy is a goal for most parents so limiting children’s exposure to viruses, colds and infections certainly makes sense. Having a Nanny ensures your child will not be in close proximity of a child with a temperature or sucking on a toy that another child has just sucked! If your child does become unwell, they can stay tucked up in their own bed with the comfort of their Nanny with them. Parents do not need to take time off work, which obviously keeps the boss happy!
