Choosing The Perfect Nanny

The time will eventually roll around when maternity leave is up, and the dread of returning to work has become a reality. At this time, parents may have already been prepared for the designated care of their baby either in the hands of a responsible relative or sitter service. Parents may have already arranged for a nanny service, or a babysitting service, to send a nanny to take care of the baby in their home.

A nanny is an excellent choice for a caregiver, as they are exceptionally adept and experienced in childcare. The parents will of course have thoroughly researched and picked the best nanny service available, for their needs and their baby’s needs.

A nanny that has exceptional credentials in the well-borne department should have already been specifically asked for when the nanny service was contacted. The nannies that have years of experiences in caring for newborns have accredited CPR and first aid training certification. These certifications are listed in their applications.       

The nanny will have taken child development training courses. Past contract terms, that stipulate their former employment as a caregiver to a newborn, will also be listed. The nanny service has already preformed the necessary background check of the nannies that they employ through their services. These checks include criminal background check, sexual predator checks, identity checks, social security checks and driving history and vehicle checks.

The nannies will have already undergone extensive interviews with the nanny service on multiple occasions. Screening is done with the utmost scrutiny, when it comes to childcare services offered by a nanny service. Nannies are also required to show medical proof of negative tests for HIV, have shots current for hepatitis A, B and C. They are required to have a TB shot updated, and require physical exams, to determine further health for working with the service.

The nanny should be chosen by the parents based on if they need a part-time nanny or a full-time nanny. Part-time nannies work no more than just a few hours a day, less than five to be exact. Their work week comes just in under twenty-four hours for working with a family. This is typically because they may have employment elsewhere, or work part-time so they can be home for their own families.

Part-time nannies have higher salaries than full-time nannies because they work, and are paid, on an hourly basis. Full-time nannies may be the better choice for the parents who are looking for longer sitting services, at lesser pay. Full-time nannies are paid weekly, and their benefits include health insurance and paid time off.

There are two kinds of full-time nannies. There are full-time live-in nannies and full-time live-out nannies. The live-in nannies stay in the home on a constant schedule, and they are less expensive, because they do not incur living expenses. Live-out nannies are paid a tad more because they do have to travel daily to and from the family home. The parents will have a chance to meet and interview the nanny to help decide on the perfect nanny for their newborn.
