Nanny Options Candidates will have a minimum of 2 years’ full-time experience with a recognized childcare qualification as follows;

  • FETAC Level 5 or 6 Childcare (0-12 years of age)
  • Montessori Teaching Diploma in Child Care
  • A. in Early Childhood Care and Education
  • Primary School Teaching Degree

If no qualification is held our nannies will have a minimum of 4 – 5 years of full time experience as a Nanny.  Our Candidates all demonstrate a genuine love and interest for the children in their care and thus take their careers very seriously.

Our Nanny Candidates are capable of sole charge of a child (or children) and promote a happy, loving and stimulating environment. The nursery duties may include preparing the child’s meals and keeping his or her room clean and tidy. Additional duties may be required and we will endeavor to find the best Candidate to suit your family’s needs.

The Nanny will provide activities suitable for all age groups- including reading, arts and crafts, jigsaws, drawing etc., depending on your child’s level at Playschool, Montessori or Primary School.

A full-time Nanny works between 10 – 12 hours per day and has two days off per week as well as 20 days paid holiday plus Bank holidays per year.

A “Nanny Share” service is also available and in recent times this has become a very popular option.  In this situation two families, both with young children, employ one professional nanny and they share the salary and other costs between them. The families then agree as to which home the children will be based. Babysitting and extra hours are by prior arrangement between an employer and an employee.

If a nanny is to “live-in” the house, then she should be provided with her own bedroom and ideally a bathroom as well. Remember that when a Nanny has finished work she may wish to spend long periods of time in the privacy of the accommodation provided, so it should be made comfortable. “Live-in” Nannies are happy to travel with the family on holidays and short breaks if required.

In addition to full-time Nannies, a Part-Time Nanny can offer an ideal solution for families wishing to have more flexibility. A Part-Time Nanny typically works for a minimum of 20 hours per week up to 35-40 hours per week. Salary varies depending on experience/duties of the candidate and we are more than willing to discuss the appropriate childcare to suit your budget.

Nanny Options can provide you with a Permanent Full-Time Nanny or Part-Time Nanny, “Live-out” or “Live-in”.  We will endeavor to help you to find a childcare solution that best fits in with your family and routine and is also flexible to change, depending on your family’s needs as it grows and changes too.
