Anxious About Who You Can Entrust Your Child For Babysitting Because Need To Resume Work Soon?

babysit girlWanting the best for your child is every parent’s wish. However, babysitter price in Singapore will be a concern to most families. For working mothers, perhaps you might even want to start to find a nanny or babysitter during your confinement period, researching all possible channels that you can reach out to for your baby. You can also post full time or part time nanny jobs at singapore classifieds online for your baby nanny. Be it from friends’ recommendations, motherhood forums, gumtree advertisements or even facebook, all you ever wanted is to engage a responsible, patient and accommodating babysitter at reasonable price quickly. You hope to have a peace of mind and settle all childcare matters quickly before the limited maternity leave count down to 0.

find-the-right-babysitterHowever, finding the right babysitter on your own is an extremely taxing and time-consuming process. When you combine your professional obligations and family life, finding the necessary time in your busy schedule to follow up on all potential candidates’ references one by one at time can be extremely bothersome.

Most often, parents will resort to freelance nannies, daycare centre, family relations or employing domestic maids for babysitting in Singapore. These options, however, are not always ideal to mitigate all the risks. Unforeseen circumstances can happen anytime especially when the guardian is occupied with their own tasks and unable to deliver attentive care to the child at the same time. You may get to experience freelance babysitters who did not turn up on the actual day even when the babysitter price is ideal with everything agreed upon. You may get last minute notice from daily babysitter that her service is unavailable tomorrow and require ad hoc babysitting. You will then have to repeat the whole tedious process of calling and searching for the suitable stand-in for help in this short period of time. Due to urgency, you may even compromise on the stringent background check on temporary nanny which can be extremely dangerous. More unknown complicated matters may occur that can disrupt your activities, resulting in an unpleasant experience. If all these resonates with you, we are here to help or please at least engage someone whom you trusted and known for her reliability and experience.

Find A Nanny Temporary or Long Term

babysitter-mother-babySince 2011, NannySOS have helped families with confinement care and expanded to providing services of daytime nanny, part time or ad hoc babysitting in Singapore. There have been ups and downs but we learnt along the way and gain many years of experience from confinement nanny, babysitting to prenatal/postnatal care. We are thankful to all parents for having us in your amazing journey together. If you want a babysitter near you and considering whether to put your child in nursery or find a temporary nanny or long term, what we can advise is to be open minded, ask for more opinions and proceed with what you are most comfortable with.

For us, being parent ourselves, we place the well-being and growth development of our child as our main priority. Our personality is formed by age 3 and pretty much remain the same throughout our lives. Therefore, with whom the child associate with during this growing up phase is very important. We will always experience pros and cons with childcare centre, personal daycare nanny, household helper or even among babysitter agencies in terms of experience and singapore nanny cost but whatever you choose, please do not let the price or your budget to be the deciding factor in your decision.

We had a personal experience with our neighbour who left their two kids, age 1 and 3 to the care of their domestic maid as both parents need to work. Accident happened when the domestic helper was fulfilling her duties in ironing clothes and looking after the younger sister at the same time. As the older brother was left unattended, the playful boy injured his fingers badly while playing with the bedroom door. Ambulance was called and parents had to disrupt their activities and rush back home from work. This accident could have been avoided if the parents did not base their decision to save on hiring cost for singapore nanny. Although it is cheap to hire household helper to help you with many chores and taking care of your child at the same time but do you think it will also be the interest of the helper to help you develop your baby’s speech and growth? We can’t turn back time. Accident happens in split second. Think thrice.

Found nannysos while looking for part time babysitter online and decided to try them out. Reasonable price for reliable service. Thank you. Ken & Melissa

Been indecisive at first on getting a home nanny as have domestic helper already but hubby says prefer more attentive care to our 2nd child… so am glad and happy with Aunty Winnie’s help especially with her past experience as nurse and teacher. Her job knowledge is extensive and thorough. She is also a serious and meticulous person. Have learnt a lot from her. Thank you Aunty Winnie! Si Ying & Gary

Through friend’s recommendation, we get to know nannysos. We used to find freelance babysitter in sengkang from facebook and forum. Have engaged a few good ones before, cheaper rate but most of the time we are not able to engage their service again when we need them. It’s kind of frustrating as we have impromptu appointments with our customers quite frequently. Been our 4th time engaging ad hoc babysitting service from nannysos. Will certainly recommend nannysos to anyone if time is valuable to you. Florence

We highly recommend nanny Mee Eng if you are looking for daytime nanny and staying in Choa Chu Kang area. We are very satisfied with her service as she has taken very good care of our baby Eva. Can see from the way she manages the needs of my baby and how happy Eva is whenever we bring our baby to her place for babysitting. Yong Woon & Jolie

We strongly encourage you to do your own research and find yourself a good babysitter to entrust your child with, even if she is not from NannySOS.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between nanny and babysitter?

In Singapore, generally a nanny is someone who takes care of infants to toddlers full time while both parents go to work during weekdays. Babysitter price will also vary due to the number of babysitting hours. On average, it is 10 to 12 hours daily babysitting job. The nanny has a bigger role and would be responsible in their development, growth, meals and activities. Some parents leave the child in the nanny’s home overnight from Monday and fetch the child home on Friday evening. There are cases where parents engage temporary nanny on days when they are unable to send the child to the childcare centre. A babysitter is someone needed on impromptu situations or occasion and usually only for short hours.
