Many families debate whether to seek childcare when going on holiday. Should we just go it alone? Should we rely on the babysitting service? Holidays are great for spending some quality family time together however can also be challenging with daily demands, different schedules and children getting bored. Holiday Nannies are a great option for many families due to their personal approach to your child/children. A holiday nanny can be interviewed and even have spent time in your home before you go on holiday. This will ensure that the children know the Nanny and you as parents feel comfortable before jetting off for some relaxation.
You can choose to fly with the Nanny or on some occasions there may be a Nanny already located at your destination. The majority of Holiday Nannies will be live in and have accommodation provided by the family. A holiday nanny is suitable for all sorts of trips and adventures, such as:
- Corporate events
- Beach holidays in hotels or private villas
- Proxy parents. Perhaps you would like some time away from the children and to leave them in qualified and trustworthy hands.
A holiday nanny will plan fun and educational activities for the children, prepare their food, follow their routine, babysit in the evening, help unpack their clothes, build sandcastles and be able to assist in many other ways. You as parents can choose to spend as much or as little time with each child on each day. The benefit of this is that you are spending quality time with the children and are also able to take time for yourself.
