Kids spend their school days counting down to summer vacation, anticipating months of sunshine and fun with friends. Parents, on the other hand, may count down the days to this school break with trepidation. How will you keep your kids occupied all summer? What can you do to ensure they don’t lose educational progress away from school? And just how will you keep an eye on them while you work? Fortunately, there’s one simple solution: Hire a nanny.

When you bring a nanny into your family, you are bringing another responsible, caring adult into the sphere who will follow your lead in terms of childrearing. A nanny’s job is built around taking care of children’s physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. The work can entail anything from transporting kids to summer camp to helping prepare nutritious meals and reinforcing positive habits like hand washing.

A great nanny not only takes care of practical matters like getting the kids ready for camp in the morning, but they will also connect with your little ones emotionally. This can keep kids motivated and active throughout the lazy summer months. From bringing little ones on educational excursions to museums or libraries to talking to them about their summer reading lists, a nanny can engage young ones in an array of positive developmental activities.

When searching for a nanny, look for an individual who has experience working in private residences and offers professional references. You may also want your nanny to have a driver’s license with a clean driving record, as well as CPR and first aid certifications. An expert nanny will bring credentials to the table that go far beyond the teen babysitter you might find next door.
