Temporary Nanny Singapore

mother-carry-baby-temporary-nannyA temporary nanny or part time nanny is ideal for families where the child is usually in daycare or child care centre but for some reasons like flu or sick leave, parents will have to seek help in ad hoc babysitting. Although really nothing can beat the feeling one gets when they spend time with their own children, but most young parents in Singapore will need to work. Children have a way of taking up all the time one has. Nowadays, couples especially find that their marriage is strained because the grownups are no longer spending quality time together. Between children and work, there really isn’t any more free time left which is why part time babysitter is needed from time to time. When you find that you need some time to yourself, it may seem like you are taking advantage of your relatives and friends if you keep leaving your child with them. Hiring a temporary nanny on ad hoc basis turned out well received by working parents where the infant or toddler is well taken care of in your absence. For most parents however, finding a suitable part time nanny at the required location is often the greatest challenge.

What You Need To Consider When Choosing A Temporary Nanny

temporary-nanny-feed-baby-milkAs a parent who wants the best for their child, there are several things you should do to ensure that your child is safe with the nanny regardless if she is full time or part time nanny. Finding a qualified babysitter takes time. You have to consider the advantages and disadvantages of babysitting at your own home and babysitting at nanny’s home as well. There are nannies who only wish to do long hours for short term instead as they find it is too tiring to commit themselves for long term especially if it is not at their own home. Although parents may prefer the part time nanny to babysit at parent’s place for the convenience but many nannies would prefer the babysitting activities to be at their own place for the comfortability and familiarity reasons.

Parents can also explore the option of hiring a temporary nanny first before committing the nanny for long term. Although price is usually the decisive factor but it may not necessarily be the main factor. Here are the top 3 factors that parents always consider before hiring a temporary nanny in Singapore.

Experience

You want to look for individuals who have experience with children especially if your child is still a baby, less than 15 months and not able to walk yet. Infants at this stage will need extra attentive care. You will have more assurance leaving your child with a nanny who has been taking care of kids or is a stay at home mom (SAHM). This way you can be sure that their experience has taught them what to do and what not to do when with children. A newbie may have no idea why the baby is crying or how to feed a child.

Cost

Cost is something parents should consider. Ask yourself “can I afford to pay a nanny?”. This will ensure that you do not hire someone and end up straining yourself because you do not have the money they require you to pay them. Cost of nanny varies due to experience and demands. You should therefore consider if the price is an amount you can afford to pay without straining your budget too much at the same time without lowering their value.

Location

Find a nanny near your home will bring much convenience to yourself and the nanny. Be it if the babysitting is at your own home or it is done at nanny’s home. Less distance traveled and able to reach home early to rest is a much wanted bonus for either party after the long hours of work.

Benefits of Hiring Temporary Nannies

Peace of Mind

You will be able to ensure that your child is not neglected as you search for professional qualifications and career development.

Better Marriage

Children do take up a lot of time from their parents. Sometimes the lack of time strains marriages. With a temporary nanny, you are able to take care of yourself and your spouse by spending more time together, go to beach, watch sun and strengthen your marriage. This allows your child to grow in a home that is stable and happy.

Flexibility

A temporary nanny is ideal for families where the child is usually in daycare or child care centre but for some reasons like flu or sick leave  because you only pay for her service when you need her. You have the flexibility to choose your own schedule. Pay only for when you need and take care of your child at other times by yourself. This allows saving in the cost, give yourself time for your own events without affecting much on the parent-child relationship.

We strongly advise you to find yourself a responsible and reliable temporary nanny, even if you did not use NannySOS Babysitting Services.

Her past experience as a nurse really ease our mind which we can concentrate on our work better, knowing Ivan will be in good hand. Definitely will use your babysitting services again!
