Choosing a Nanny

Many parents do not know the difference between a nanny and an au pair. So how to choose which may be right for your family?

A nanny, can live in or live out, and is an experienced child care professional. They may have begun as au pairs, and received further experience in the child care field, or they may be formally trained. They generally do not do housework, except for cleaning up from the child care activities, and their main purpose is just that...they are dedicated to helping your child grow and develop on a one to one basis.
