Summer Nannies

Families hire nannies for the summer because their kids are out of school for the summer and aren’t old enough to be left home alone all day. During the school year it is easier for parents to coordinate activities or after-school care for their child for a few hours, but in the summer it is a different story.

Kids can go to day camps or classes throughout the day during the summer but if both parents are employed, getting the kids to and from these activities can be a challenge. This is why many parents rely on hiring a summer nanny to take care of these issues.

A summer nanny can stay at home with the kids while you’re at work or they can even travel with the family and care for the kids while the parents do activities separate from their children. It is an ideal situation for a family that can afford a summer nanny for this specific reason.

 

A summer nanny does the same things that a nanny who is employed year-round does either part-time or full-time. The bulk of a summer nanny’s responsibilities will revolve around making the summer fun and safe for the children and keeping the children busy by taking them to various activities such as sports lessons or games, music lessons, arts and crafts classes or any other extra-curricular activity the child may be participating in.

A summer nanny will most likely be doing summer academic work with the children in her care. This helps keep the child current on anything learned throughout the past school year and will help keep them prepared once school begins again.

As far as housekeeping goes, a summer nanny will most likely be responsible for some light housekeeping, mostly cleaning up after the children. Since the majority of summer nanny positions are to care for children who are in their school years and a bit more independent, a summer nanny can have the children in her care complete some simple chores on their own such as making their own beds and putting their dishes in the dishwasher, based on what the parents want done.
