Live In & Live Out Nannies

temporary live in nanny

We specialise in placing Temporary Nannies with both local and overseas clients.

My Travelling Nanny is the only Nanny agency in the UK specialising in Temporary placements. If you’re seeking a live-in or live-out nanny for a temporary period, then we can help you.

We have 8 years experience in the Temporary childcare industry, meaning that we are easily able to source high calibre temp nannies across the UK and the rest of the world, either planned and bookedin advance or at short notice for emergency bookings.

Unlike other agencies, our temporary nannies, mothers helps, and maternity nurses are not usually permanent nannies who are temping in between positions. Many are specialist temporary nannies, teachers, nurses and other flexible workers, meaning they have specific and relevant experience going into families homes on a temporary basis, which is a specific and valuable skill-set.

The best temporary nannies are flexible, easy-going, adaptable and confident in their abilities with a wide age-range and special needs experience, enabling them to fit seamlessly into a new environment with ease.

All our nannies are subject to our specialist vetting procedures, including a personal interview, where we carefully select for personalities and skill-sets that suit temporary positions. We always demand high standards in order to ensure we are providing our clients with a Nanny who is well-suited, responsible and professional.

What can I expect from my Temporary Nanny?

Temp nannies and mother’s helpers can work from as little as 3 hours per day to 24 hour care, for a 1 day booking or on a longer term basis.

We will need to know whether you would prefer your Temporary Nanny to live-in or live-out, and this could depend on how often you require their assistance, for example, or whether you have the spare room for them.

Our nannies can care for children of any age, either on their own or as part of a team. A mother’s helper for example, usually work alongside a parent or alongside another more senior nanny. We also have nannies who work as ‘proxy parents’, which is where the parents will be absent and the nanny is responsible for living in and doing everything a parent would do during this booking.

Exact Nanny duties depend on the length of booking, and can be flexible based on the family needs. They can include (but are not limited to):

  • Children’s meal preparation

  • Ensuring children’s rooms are kept tidy

  • Helping with homework

  • Driving or transporting the children to and from school/activities

  • Engaging and stimulating the children with appropriate educational or physical activities

  • Arranging play-dates or trips out (with parents consent)

Temporary Nanny Rates
