Live Out Nanny Agency - Happy Nest Nanny Agency

Live Out Nanny

A live out nanny will look after your children in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own home, on a working schedule that suits your family.

Live out nanny for parents at home

A nanny can share care of the children and related duties with the parents and act as an additional pair of hands. Households that benefit from a live in nanny are parents that run a home business, have children with additional needs, have twins, triplets, or generally feel outnumbered.

Live out nanny for working parents

If you work, your nanny can arrive before you leave for work, and go home when you return and have sole charge of your children in the meantime. Your children are cared for in their own home, and your nanny can assist with other duties related to the children, or other duties such as housekeeping.

What hours does a live out nanny work?

Traditionally, around 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, and you can usually arrange evening babysitting as well.  This working pattern suits parents that work a traditional 9-5 job, but we have the solution for those that don’t.  You can employ a live-out nanny that works on a more flexible basis such as part-time or to wrap-around irregular working hours.

The Happy Nest Promise

Happy Nest only introduce you to nannies who match your requirements, and who we would entrust our own children with.  For example, newborns would only be left in the care of one of our nannies who are highly experienced working with babies. Live out nannies come with a variety of experience and knowledge of certain age groups, and of course we will only introduce you to a nanny who is local to your family home. Finding you the perfect nanny, that has the qualities and skills that you’re looking for, is what we’re here for. If you’d like more information, or to talk your options through, contact us on 0800 690 6109. We can provide more information about hiring a nanny, and offer helpful advice based on your family’s individual requirements.
