Live in Nanny

A live in Nanny gives a wide range of support and care for your family.  A live in nanny provides you with someone to live on site, meaning that pesky traffic/train delays will not get in the way of your day.  A live in nanny also gives you the flexibility for additional hours/babysitting/weekend work, should the need arise from time to time.  This type of Nanny is often a favourable option for our P&T clients.

About Live In Nannys

A live in Nanny is suited to a family who require the greatest level of flexibility from their childcare.  By having a live in Nanny, you are able to ensure that early or late evenings and weekends can be covered.  A live in Nanny is a great choice for a busy family with either additional space within the family home (perhaps a staff apartment or section of the house) or even separate annex accommodation on the family estate.  

Live in Nannies are a popular because they provide families with busy and varying schedule the security of a full-time caretaker for their children. Last minute babysitting, proxy-parenting or even travel is easily accommodated.  Live in Nannies have a wide range of skills and specialities, so don’t hesitate to ask us about other skills like cooking, teaching, or housekeeping. 

Is a live in nanny right for you?

One of the biggest determining factors is whether or not you can provide them with a private space for them to reside when they are not on duty.  This can be a dedicated room within the house, a basement apartment, a different apartment within the building, or separate annex/purpose built staff accommodation. It is important that the live in nanny is given a good space in which they can relax, rest and have privacy when they are not on duty.

If you’re not sure what type of nanny is right for your family, you may want to review the different types of nannies, or speak with one of our professionals.

What you would need to provide your Live In Nanny:


A live in Nanny would need to be given her own private room.  This can vary from client to client depending on their home(s).  In the most simple version, our clients provide the Nanny with her own private bedroom in the main residence.  This would normally consist of a double bed, furniture, TV, wifi.  This can include either an ensuite or a bathroom.  More often than not, our clients dedicate a ‘level’ of the house to the nanny, be it a basement flat area or attic conversion which would then act as bedroom/private bathroom.  Some of our clients provide an entire ‘apartment’ to the nanny as part of the main residence, giving the Nanny a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom.  Clients with more space often try to accommodate the Nanny in ‘annex’ or outbuilding dwellings which can range from studio apartments through to 2 bedroom apartments.


If you require the Nanny to drive, then most clients provide the nanny with access to the family cars, or indeed her own dedicated car to drive for errands, shopping and school runs etc.

Additional Package:

Most of our clients are very generous with their Nannies and offer additional perks to the live in package.  This can include mobile phone allowance, gym membership, health insurance, fuel for days off, food, bonuses etc, but it just depends on the nature of the salary offered and how you wish to attract the right candidates to the role.


Salary you would expect to pay:
