Before I started working as a holiday nanny I thought it was quite a strange concept, taking somebody away with you, to help you look after your own children, on possibly the only big family holiday of the year? It seems a bit unnecessary, yes? So why would you need a holiday nanny?

Let me tell you why hiring a holiday nanny might just be the best thing you have ever done, and you might never be able to holiday without one again!

Whilst family holidays are something to treasure and make treasured memories from, there are many aspects that can be found quite stressful, especially when there is more than one child involved. Starting at the airport; dealing with the luggage whilst trying to make sure one child doesn’t run off, juggling the baby whilst you’re sorting out your hand luggage, waiting for your transfer in a sweaty unconditioned airport whilst one of them is having a tantrum. That is to name just a few of the many hurdles you have to deal and you haven’t even arrived at your holiday destination yet, never mind the extra pair of eyes you could always do with by the villa pool.

Holiday Nannies can be worth their weight in gold. They let you have those lie-ins you’ve been dreaming about, lazy days by the pool, and enjoyable outings together, without any of the attendant whining. All of these reasons are why hiring a holiday nanny is a great idea.

Having a holiday nanny helps you take away the worries and stresses that might come with traveling with young children. You won’t need to find a local babysitter or worry about the children enjoying Kids Club. You’ll have someone to help you with meal times and the dreaded suncream application, not to mention witching hour. With a nanny at your disposal, you can be as flexible as you like with the comfort of knowing you have an experienced, professional nanny helping you look after your children in the comfort of your holiday home or villa.

A holiday nanny is different to an everyday nanny, she is there to be your child’s play-mate and your right-hand girl. There are lots of different packages of care available, the nanny can work during the day to help you entertain the children, or she can just be there for the early mornings and late afternoons and evening help. Holiday nannies are there to offer flexible care on your holiday, helping to make sure it really is an enjoyable one.
