Nanny / Housekeeper

A Nanny Housekeeper really does combine two services in one and offers invaluable support for busy families. Rather than using childcare which involves dropping-off and collection plus a cleaner, a Nanny Housekeeper can look after your children at home, help with household chores, and even have dinner on the table by the time you get home.

Rather than spending your evening cooking and cleaning, you can spend quality time with your family. We can find you a housekeeping nanny that provides childcare support when you need it – full time or part time – live-in or live-out – and has the qualities and skills that you are looking for.

How will you benefit from a Nanny Housekeeper?

Most working families struggle with the everyday chores that need doing namely cleaning, laundry and cooking. Those working the modern working week finishing work at 5 – 5:30, then collect their children from nursery and get home to have to put a meal together, put the children to bed and then do the chores.  Either that or weekends are spent doing chores and not enough fun stuff. If this scenario sounds familiar, your entire family would benefit from the services of a Nanny Housekeeper.

You can specify shift patterns so that your nanny helps with the childcare before and after school, and during the day helps with housekeeping and preparing the evening meal.  If you need full-time childcare help 3 days a week, or to fit around shift-work that can be provided too.

With Happy Nest, you really can tailor your nanny and housekeeping requirements to suit your family’s lifestyle and values.
