Why hire a live-in nanny instead of a local nanny?
Top 10 reasons that justify hiring an in-home nanny:
She is more than a babysitter. She will support you by taking care of common household chores such as shopping, light cleaning, meals preparation and keeping your child safe as she will be home all the time.
Daycare is expensive. The cost of two or three places in childcare for a high revenue family can equal or even exceed the cost of a full-time foreign nanny. Moreover, these nannies are paid a minimum salary of $14.25 per hour as compared to the market price of $22-$25 for local nannies.
Live-in nannies are committed to your family. Typically, they are hired for 24 months at a time. In some cases, they spend several years looking after your children. This stability is beneficial to your children’s growth, development and emotional well-being.
No more browsing through websites looking for overbooked babysitters and nannies! Tell us your specific criteria, and we will find you a highly experienced professional from our extensive database of foreign nannies.
They are highly motivated and always willing to help you. They will not hesitate to go beyond the call of duty if they are properly compensated in time off or in wages. Live-in nannies are more than employees – they become a part of your family.
She is always present in your home. This is often lifesaving, especially in case of unforeseen events, such as unexpected pedagogical days or daycare closures caused by adverse winter conditions.
She adapts to your lifestyle, your habits, and your life journey. She also understands how to strike a balance between fulfilling her professional duties and respecting your privacy.
Do you work late? Are you constantly on the go? The in home nanny will welcome your children back from school and take them to the extracurricular activities. Moreover, she will happily work schedules different to 9-5 and babysit your children on evenings and weekends. No more cancelling important meetings or romantic nights out!
Is one of the parents a frequent traveller? Your child caregiver will take over his or her home duties and support the stay-at-home parent.
We hire Au Pairs and in-home caregivers from across the globe. This means that you can choose someone who meets your criteria. We can even find someone with specific skills such as a driving nanny, a nanny homeschool teacher or a foreign-language speaking nanny who will teach your children her native language.
Treat yourself to peace of mind by welcoming a live-in nanny into your home and offer her family abroad a better future.

What is a live-in nanny, au pair or in-home child caregiver?
In Canada, these terms are used interchangeably. A live-in nanny is often a woman, aged 25-40, who is well-educated and chooses childcare and family support as a career. They come to Canada with a work permit as an in-home caregiver or as a foreign worker under the child caregiver immigration stream. They work for a Canadian family for a period of 2-4 years until they become eligible to request for permanent residency in Canada.
By hiring an in-home nanny, you are welcoming a highly motivated full-time employee into your home. Her sole mission is supporting you in raising your children and managing your household. In exchange, you provide an agreed-upon set of working hours, a place to live and, usually, a minimum salary of $14.25/hour.

Ever wondered why there is a shortage of nannies in Quebec?
There is simply too much demand and not enough nannies!
The COVID-19 pandemic aggravates the problem: demand has exploded, and dozens of families are competing for the same nanny’s services. This means you need to spend hours browsing nanny websites and making phone calls just to stand a chance of being considered. Clearly, finding a local nanny when you need one is nothing short of a miracle.
But even if you do, there is no guarantee that you’ll retain her services!
In this industry, turnover rates are sky-high because nannies rarely commit to a single family.
Don’t you wish there were a better solution?
Thankfully, there is.Welcoming a live-in nanny into your home ensures that your children are taken care of by a childcare professional for the long-term.

Avoid the headache of local nanny turnover.
Find your live-in nanny today!
Although readily available, a local nanny is very solicited and often switches from one employer to another.
Imagine looking for a new nanny from scratch after every new school session.
Think about all the energy and time it requires, all without the guarantee of finding anyone suitable!
Do you live outside of downtown Montreal? You will struggle to find a nanny even if you pay premium rates.
Even if you do manage to find a nanny, you will not always have the time to assess her qualifications, professional experience or even her personality. Are you comfortable leaving your children with a complete stranger you just met online?
For these reasons, hiring a professional agency saves you time, money, and guarantees that your children will be taken care of by a highly qualified and experienced professional.
However you look at it, hiring a foreign nanny is a clearly the best long-term strategy.
