A nanny is a child care specialist who works in a family’s private home providing the highest level of customized child care and personalized attention to the family’s children. Hiring a nanny is the answer for parents looking for personal and customized childcare. Every family situation is unique with specific childcare needs. Hiring a nanny gives parents the flexibility to hire someone that fits their schedule and their children’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs. Unlike day cares,children cared for in private homes by nannies receive more consistent and personal attention, and do not get sick as often. Another consideration is that hiring a nanny can often be more cost effective for families.
