Little Ones consultants will verify that identity documents and work visa are real, a process that is repeated with each of our candidates that have the profiles to work with Hampstead families.

Hampstead Live-in and Live-out Nannies

They work 10 to 12 hours per day, 5 days per week, and they can do two babysitting sessions, which will be included in the salary. They could work for 24 hours on call or for a 6-day shift, but the family needs to take in consideration that the salary will be higher.
A Full-time Nanny can also work as a Live-out Nanny; they will have the same tasks as a Live-in Nanny, but they won’t live with the family. They will leave the house when their nanny shift finishes.

The tasks of a full-time nanny are the following, but not limit to: preparing the children for school in the morning, picking up from and dropping off at school, preparing meals, bath and bed time, driving the children, arranging playdates and extra activities after school, helping with homework, making sure that the children’s rooms are tidy and clean, and keeping the parents informed of developmental progress.

A Hampstead part-time nanny will help the parents to look after their children for 10-12 hours per day, from one to four days per week or for as short a period as 10 hours per week.
