Mother’s Helpers

Total Care Staffing  Mother’s Helpers tend to be younger and less experienced than a Nanny. A Mother’s Helper essentially helps out a stay-at-home parent or a family needing extra help while they are home.

A Mother’s Helper mostly works under some supervision to handle all aspects of child care, errands, easy meal preparation and light house work pertaining to the children. Because of the varied duties and because an adult is often in the home as well, the role is different than that of a babysitter, Nanny.

Day-to-day duties may vary with a Mother’s Helper, as the more accurate job description will be to “perform duties as per the family’s needs.” This job is very flexible, may be either part-time or full-time, live in or live out, and may be an hourly or salaried position.

Typically, the role of a Mother’s Helper is held by young women who may aspire to move into other child care positions in the future.

A growing use of a Mother’s Helper is for parents who telecommute (work from home), home-school children, or have a home-based business. While a Mother’s Helper usually has babysitting experience, no qualifications are required to perform the job. Total Care Staffing does give these nannies CPR and first aid training.
