Live-In Nanny Versus Live-Out Nanny
Many Moms love having their Nanny living at home with them and their family.
Others feel a lot more comfortable when their Nannies live out.
Here is what a few of our mom’s had to say.
Pro Live-In NANNY
“Our Live in nanny costs us much less and I get more hours.”
“I love having someone that is almost always available for evening babysitting.”
“Its great to have someone that is there and ready to help first thing in the morning.”
“I like having someone in the house in case of a night time emergency.”
“Its easier to leave the children and go on vacation with my Hubby.”
“My nanny is so flexible with my work schedule.”
” It’s great that there is no commute. Our nanny never misses work because of bad weather.”
“Having her live with us really makes her part of the family.”
Pro Live-Out Nanny
“I like my privacy.”
“I wouldnt want to have to be worrying about having food around that she likes.”
” I am not used to walking around appropriately dressed all the time.”
“Another person in the house means more utilities, more food.”
“We do not want to lose our guest bedroom and bathroom”
Live in Nanny? Live Out Nanny? Its a personal choice. Nothing is ever perfect. Know your families needs, budget and personality and make the best decision possible.
I’ve used The Nanny Pages a few times and have had SUCH a great experience.
I’ve posted jobs of all different types (temporary, long term, part time…) and have had quality nannies apply for the job each time.
It’s also so well run, such great customer service!!
I’ve recommended The Nanny Pages to all my friends!!!
I also love their great info posted on their blog!!

Cleaners and Nannies are not mind readers. While you may feel that dusting the blinds is critical, she may think that folding the laundry perfectly is essential. It is important to communicate with your Nanny or Cleaning Help. I find making a list with numbered tasks in order of what is most important to you is a good idea. To get the most out of your Cleaning Help, make sure to communicate what your priorities are.

Previously, a LMO cost $275 per position. The application fee has been increased to $1,000 for every position that an employer requests.
There will be no refund in the event of a negative LMO (Now renamed LMIA) or if the employer cancels or withdraws the application.
I don’t know if this is your company or not, but it is the best tool on the market. In the past it has been the hardest thing to find domestic help. With the Nanny Pages the response has been overwhelming.
I can now even find help for the odd days or evenings that I may need.
I hope the girl I hired will be happy and stay.
I am telling all my friends about The Nanny Pages.

I was looking for a male caregiver for quite a while. I contacted 3 to 4 agencies and I had very poor results. I received an email about posting my job description on The Nanny Pages. The day after I posted it I had many phone calls and emails. I had many potential candidates. In fact I hired the one that suited our needs the best, two days after I posted my job.
I am so grateful to The Nanny Pages for helping me find the caregiver we needed.
