Temporary Nannies go through all the same checks as Permanent Nannies
Temporary nannies are not babysitters. They are interviewed in person, have their police check, ID, and first aid documents checked, and their verbal referees are called and verified.
It makes no difference if they are looking after your child for half a day, six weeks or as a permanent nanny, the nanny will have the same checks and must reach the same standards as permanent nannies.
Why do some nannies work as temps?
Nannies opt to work as temps for all sorts of reasons. It could be because they enjoy the variety of experience and the freedom to stop and start that temping and emergency nanny jobs bring. It could be because they are a teacher in their school holidays, or a nanny whose new job is not starting for a month or so. Some permanent nannies like to work as a temp when their families go on holiday or when they take leave themselves. Others temp because they only have short periods left on their visa’s such as some of the Australian nannies.
Focused on being flexible, temporary nannies are used to hitting the ground running and usually have lots of experience with different age groups. You don’t have time to show them everything and so they need to be quick learners. Temp nannies charge the same as regular nannies, and long-term temp bookings mean they are entitled to holidays which they accrue just as any other nanny would.
Short Term Temporary Childcare
Parents require short term temporary childcare for a variety of reasons. This can be because a nanny is not ready to start the job just yet, as they have to work out a notice period with their previous employer. Some families just like to take a nanny along for their own holiday so they can have a hand with the children and someone to babysit while they go for dinner in the evening. Occasionally, emergency nannies are used if a stay at home parent is ill or the regular nanny is sick.
Temporary nannies can bring along something fresh to the family perhaps adding a little tweak to the routine that is incorporated after they leave. Or bring new input into ways of doing anything from new meals or creative play, to behaviour management. However, nannies that are employed temporarily don’t tend to go in with all guns blazing trying to change the world in two weeks. Their role is short-term, to step in and provide consistency and stick to the present routine so as to keep the children feeling secure, especially if there is a new baby due for instance.
Temporary nanny jobs can be perfect for some childcare professionals at certain times of life, and for others it is an on-going career choice. Whereas for parents being able to find last-minute quality childcare can feel like a life saving resource during difficult times.
