A Safe Place

Growing up, my mom worked extremely hard in order to financially provide for my small family. Now that I’m an adult, I appreciate the long hours she worked at the factory so that she could afford to buy food and clothes for my sister and me. Unfortunately, due to my mom’s work schedule, my sister and I were forced to stay at relatives’ homes after school each day. Because we stayed at so many different people’s homes, our bus driver always got confused about the location he needed to drop us off at. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of leaving your kids at a safe daycare facility each day. Enjoy!

4 Benefits Of Hiring A Nanny To Help With Child Care


If you have a young child and have to work, you will need assistance with taking care of your child. When it comes to childcare options, you can send your child to daycare, depend upon family or friends to take care of your child, or you can hire a nanny. Working with a nanny can offer many benefits to your family. 

Benefit #1: Consistent Care

One of the biggest benefits of hiring a nanny is that you can provide your child with consistent care with a nanny. With a nanny, you can provide your child with another consistent adult in their life. Children thrive when they are in safe and predictable environments.  

By having the same caregiver with your child when you are not present, you will be giving your child another consistent adult to be with. You will be providing your child with consistent, one-on-one care with the same care provider. Your child will be able to develop trust and a relationship with their nanny. Consistency is key to a stress-free environment for a child, and a nanny can help provide that.  

Benefit #2: Focused Care 

Another benefit of hiring a nanny is providing your child with focused and quality care. Your nanny is only going to be watching your child or children; they are not going to be watching an entire roomful of children like your child would experience at daycare. Their attention throughout the day will be on attending to your child's specific needs.  

That means that your child is going to get lots of one-on-one attention. As the nanny gets to know your child, they will be able to provide more structured play that is made to accommodate your child's particular abilities.  

Benefit #3: Educated Care 

When you hire a nanny, you have control of who you hire. There are lots of nannies looking for a family to work with that holds both associate and bachelor's degrees. Their degree may be in early childhood education, or they may have a degree in a different field. Having someone who is educated work with your child can help benefit your child, as they work with someone who can pass on their knowledge to your child.  

Benefit #4: Customized Care 

Finally, by hiring a nanny, you will get custom care. Your nanny is going to get to know your child. They will learn your child's personality and needs; they will work with you to guide your child's development.  

At the same time, your child will get to enjoy being in their own space while they get customized care. They will get to nap, sleep in their own bed, and eat food in their own house. They will get custom care right at home.  

If you want to hire a nanny for a child, look for a nanny that can help commit to being around for a while. You can retain a nanny by treating your nanny as a trusted employee and by providing them with benefits, such as paid time off, that will help make taking care of your child a good working environment for your nanny as well.
