What is a travel nanny?

Travel nannies are childcare providers who are hired specifically engaged by Singaporean or host families stationed overseas for a specific care arrangement eg. confinement care or live-in infant care. These nannies will be briefed in detail and understand their priorities and job scope. These trips can range in length, anywhere from 2 weeks to a max of 3 months. Travel nannies can be an alternative arrangement for families who seek comfort, reliability and assurance to parents overseas.

What should I keep in mind when looking to hire travel nanny?

If you’re hoping to hire a nanny, there are a few key things you’ll want to consider.

First, and most importantly, allow yourself as much time as possible to interview potential travel nannies. We suggest to begin your search at least 2 to 3 months before the date of departure. This will give the nanny of your choice, the opportunity for a work trial day in your home, to see how she interacts with you or establish the mutual relationship. Your nanny will be spending a lot of time with your family, in close quarters, so you want to be sure his or her personality and energy level meshes well with yours.

Once you’ve found the perfect nanny, the next step is to enter into an engagement agreement with NannyPro. This will cover hours on duty, childcare and family assistant responsibilities, compensation, any additional expenses that you will be responsible for, and other trip details. In addition to the monthly salary, most families will pay for the nanny’s travel, meals, accommodations, and the activities she does with your children or the whole family.

Travel arrangement – It will the responsibility of families to arrange for the overseas visa for the travel nanny. NannyPro will assist with the administration and paperwork arrangement like air ticket and travel insurance.

During the course of her stay with you, it’s important to make sure she has sufficient rest, so she doesn’t get burnt out.
