Live out Nanny

A live out Nanny gives a wide range of support and care for your family.  It provides you with someone to work either part time or full time with your family and look after your children as per their needs.  Some families use after school nannies, some families use part time morning or afternoon, and some use full time five or six day a week full time care.  Most of our clients at P&T come to us for full time Nannies, but we love placing all different types of nannies with our clients.  🙂

About Live Out Nannies

Live out nannies (as opposed to live in nannies) are suitable to families that prefer not to offer accommodation to their nanny, but still require more regulated hours/days of care.  Modern live out nannies have a wide range of skills and specialties to compliment their caretaker abilities, so don’t be shy if you have a seemingly unusual request. Most live out nannies will be flexible as per your needs and changing schedule, so it’s important you find the right fit.   

Is a live out nanny right for you? 

A live out Nanny is suitable to families who have a clear understanding of the routine/schedule their family require.  The live out Nanny will be flexible when required, but due to perhaps a commute/travel distance, might not always be able to do last minute changes.  A live out nanny is a perfect choice for families who prefer to keep a slight separation between the nanny and family, or perhaps don’t wish to provide accommodation or additional aspects to the package. 

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 consider:


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.  If the Nanny has her own car, then it is typical to expect the salary to reflect her travel/fuel costs when using the car as part of their duties during each day.


Many of our clients ask their full time nannies to travel with the family to help.  Again this needs to be reflected in the salary/package offered, and typically clients will agree a ‘holiday rate’ to pay to the nanny if they are being asked to work 24/7 for a number of days in a row.


Take into account where your nanny lives and where how far they will be commuting each day.  Remember that traffic and train delays can cause problems for the nanny arriving, so bear in mind the commute the nanny will have to take each day to get to you.  Also if you ask them to babysit late into the evening, this can also cause more planning on the clients behalf.


Even though some clients preference is for the nanny to live out, some of our clients (particularly those based around the world) like to help source/pay for separate accommodation for the Nanny.  This means that they are helping with the re-location aspect.  For example, many of our Middle Eastern clients in Dubai will provide separate accommodation for the Nanny, but this is still considered a live out role.  However the client will cover all the costs/running costs of the separate accommodation (and the salary will reflect this).

Salary you would expect to pay:

Salary ranges entirely on the candidates experience level.  Remember the nanny will have a higher living cost associated with live in nannies and thus the package must reflect the location where they live.  London for example is a very expensive city to live in, alongside other cities such as Monaco and Zurich, and the salary must take this into consideration.  This is P&T general guide to salary:

Entry level/Less experienced Live out Nannies:  £350 – £550 net per week

Mid level/More experienced Live out Nannies:  £550 – £800 net per week

High level/Very experienced Live out Nannies:  £800+ net per week

This can all be affected by package offered, and P&T is well versed with any type of challenge!
