Traveling Nannies

Whether skiing in Colorado, or playing on the beach in Cozumel, Mexico, having a Nanny along to help with the children means mom and dad can relax and really enjoy their vacation. Taking a Nanny on vacation is becoming more popular among families. Parents say the expense is worth the extra set of hands when traveling with small children.

You can have the best of both worlds, It’s not that parents don’t want to spend time with their children, it’s just that it would be nice to have some alone time alone together too. Mom and Dad get a little alone time for a romantic dinner out or late-night stroll. Sometimes just having a date night while you’re on vacation is so nice and just what a couple needs to re-connect.

Total Care Staffing provides caregivers who can watch the children as parents enjoy anything from a meal to a day of snorkeling. Bringing a Nanny along can provide huge flexibility; Total Care Staffing gets hundred of requests per year from parents asking about taking nannies on vacation.

Bringing a Nanny that the child already knows is optimal. Someone you trust is always welcome from the child’s perspective, with new surroundings and new experiences lurking around every corner, familiarity for a child is wonderful. You don’t have to worry about trying to find someone who is screened properly that you can trust and who knows your child’s routines in a strange place.

Taking a Nanny on vacation can be costly. Parents pay salary on top of the fees related to kid-friendly activities, such as admission to SeaWorld or Disneyland, Souvenirs and meals. Nannies also need their own space, be sure to book hotel rooms, a two-room suite or a time-share with a separate bedroom for the Nanny.

Nannies with a sense of adventure think it will be fun to see new places, and nannies enjoy being with the children. Some nannies say they likely wouldn’t get to go to those vacation destinations if not through their jobs. Most importantly, sharing a family vacation creates shared memories and more tightly bonds Nanny and kids.
