A Nanny will generally hold child care qualifications and would be employed by you on a live-in or live-out arrangement (dependent upon your particular needs). Most Qualified Nannies are trained to provide for the care and educational development of children. A nanny is a full-time childcare provider who usually has extensive experience/and or training as such. A nanny may have a live-in or live-out situation with the family they work for. Nannies are also retributed more money than au pairs and may work longer hours, depending on the work agreement.
Some of the best nannies in the market would not always have formal qualifications, however their references will be second to none and possess extensive experience. If your requirement is for someone to assume full responsibility for your children whilst you are away on a regular basis, an experiences / qualified nanny is the right option for your.
They will provide a safe and enjoyable environment within your home in which your children can learn, develop and grow safely.
Au pairs, on the other hand, are not necessarily trained professionals and do not have to have any experience working with children, although it is definitely a plus. The emphasis, however, is on cultural exchange. Families who hire au pairs often do so to introduce their children to a different language and culture. Au pairs usually live with their host family, but may also live on their own, as some host families offer separate living accommodations for their au pairs.The pay is also less for an au pair than for a nanny, but au pairs typically work less than nannies and are actually not technically considered employees. Au pairs also receive ‘extras’ that don’t come with a nanny job, such as help with transportation expenses, and room and board (which is not always included with nanny gigs).
