Looking for a Live-In Nanny?

When hiring a nanny you can decide if you want the added flexibility of having them live in your home

Live-in nannies vs. live-out nannies

A nanny can be "sole charge" whether they live-in or not. This means that they look after children when the parents are not at home, or they can work alongside the parents at home.

If you're looking to hire a nanny, Tinies will guide you through all your childcare options, providing help and advice on what you're looking for - when you need it.

Hiring a live-in nanny

Live-in nannies normally work an 11-12 hour day, Monday to Friday, together with 2 nights babysitting included.

Nannies that live in your home can be in sole charge of the children, and they perform "nursery duties":

  • Doing the children's washing and ironing
  • Keeping their rooms tidy
  • Clearing away the toys
  • Cooking for the children and clearing up in the kitchen afterwards.

A live-in nanny's primary role is care of the children, and therefore household cleaning is not normally included but should be specifically discussed if it is required (see Nanny Housekeepers).

You are required to provide a live-in nanny with appropriate accommodation either in the home, or separate to it. On the weekend a live-in nanny should be allowed her own free time but still be allowed to stay in the accommodation offered.

It is cheaper to hire a live-in nanny, but this is mainly because you're providing them with accommodation. It can mean you have someone available more often, and that they become like one of the family.

Live-out daily nannies

Live-out nannies, also known as daily nannies, normally work a 10 hour day, Monday to Friday. If you hire a live-out nanny, they only do babysitting if agreed in advance, and this is paid on top of their normal salary.

Daily nannies can be in sole charge of the children and they perform "nursery duties", the same way a live-in nanny would.
