When you’re a busy parent, there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done.
Fortunately, there’s a solution available that may help you get closer to checking everything off your mounting to-do list without sacrificing sleep or quality time with your family – hiring a hybrid nanny.
A hybrid nanny fulfills the role of a nanny while taking on additional responsibilities, such as doing housework, cooking meals, or acting as the family assistant.
At Ease Family Solutions can help families find the perfect hybrid nanny for their needs. Since introducing this option for families, 95 percent of our placements have been in the role of Nanny/Family Assistant.
Both families and nannies recognize the immense value this position can bring. A Nanny/Family Assistant can help with scheduling, running errands, and doing some light housework in addition to providing quality childcare.
Our families can’t say enough good things about hiring a hybrid nanny. Here are some ways hybrid nannies can improve your life.
1. Get additional support
Today’s families are busier than ever, and they are finding that they need more support than a traditional nanny can provide. Hiring a hybrid nanny can help them handle essential tasks like housekeeping, cooking, running errands, and scheduling appointments.
2. Minimize people coming into the home
Many families are reluctant to let too many people into their homes out of concern for the health and safety of their families. Hiring a hybrid nanny allows families to bring one trusted person into the house who can fulfill multiple roles.
3. Help nannies improve
Nannies benefit as much as families do when transitioning into a hybrid nanny role. This position allows them to enhance their skill set as they take on new responsibilities that they can add to their resume. In addition, as they become more proficient, they can gain a higher income level by working in a dual role instead of focusing solely on being a nanny.
4. Build a stronger relationship with your nanny
Although hybrid nannies are employees, they can start to feel like part of the family over time. Having a nanny performing a hybrid role can help families build a stronger relationship that can benefit everyone, especially the children in the nanny’s care.
5. Lower stress and improve quality time
After a long day of working, the last thing you want to do is clean the house or cook dinner. Hiring a hybrid nanny can help you enjoy your time with your family. Instead of spending time cooking, cleaning, or figuring out the family calendar, you can play games with your family or have deeper conversations with your children.
These years will go fast. Hiring a hybrid nanny can help ensure you spend them doing activities that bring your family closer together.
