What is a Live in Nanny?

A live-in nanny is a nanny who takes residence in your home, and can provide, if needed, a 24-hour service.

A live-in nanny is provided their own bedroom and privacy when “off-duty” and some families will offer separate accommodation. Many families also offer a separate bathroom and, where possible, living space in order to attract a higher calibre of live-in nanny.

Live-in nannies often work between 10 and 12 hours per day, 5 days per week. Many families also require two nights of babysitting included in the salary. A live-in nanny may work a 24-hour shift or 5-6 day shifts for a higher salary.

Little Ones will only put forward live-in nannies who have experience with children of your family’s age group.

What to expect from your Live in Nanny

Duties include, but are not limited to:

  • educational activities such as teaching a second language
  • arranging play-dates and social schedules
  • ensuring children’s bedrooms are clean and tidy
  • homework assistance
  • washing and ironing the children’s clothes
  • preparation of meals for the children
  • driving the children
  • planning children’s extracurricular activities
  • keeping the parents informed of developmental progress

What do you pay a live in nanny?

In London, a live-in nanny with more than three years of professional experience earns between £300 and £450 net per week. However, this is dependent on family requirements and the nanny’s experience. 24-hour live-in nannies usually receive salaries of over £500 net per week.

Live-in nannies working abroad command higher salaries of £550 to £950 net per week - again, this depends on the requirements of your family.

Live-in nannies can travel with your family and offer 24-hour cover while parents are away. In such instances a set salary will be arranged.

Does a live in nanny pay rent?

A Live-in Nanny does not pay rent, and the family will need to arrange private accommodation for her. The main reason for this is that the wage of a live-in nanny in comparison with the wage of a live-out nanny is more affordable. Besides this, many families choose to have a live in nanny for the flexibility they gain; the parents don’t need to worry if the nanny might arrive late, since she won’t need to commute. Another reason is that the family is looking to the nanny to become part of the family, being able to create a deeper relationship between the nanny, the children and the parents. Please take into consideration that a Live-in nanny, apart from not paying rent, does not pay for food and bills.

How can Little Ones help you recruit your Live in Nanny?

Our reliable consultants will be interviewing them face to face to establish their skills, experience and qualifications. This is to make sure that only the most suitable nannies are introduced to your family. Picking the right agency will prevent you from taking too much time meeting candidates that might not even be interested in your offer. Unlike using an alternative source like social media to advertise and recruit nannies, our nanny agency can make certain that the family will be in safe hands.

This includes one year of educational background ideally, and two years of professional experience as a live in nanny.

Furthermore, all Little Ones Live in Nannies will have DBS check or police check, as Paediatric First Aid certificate.
