How old should a live in nanny be?

Qualifications of a Live In Nanny

According to many nanny agencies, a live in nanny's salary is partially based on the age and the experience of that particular live in nanny. Most nanny agencies have specific age requirements for their nannies. Families who do not use a nanny agency to find a live in nanny, however, may choose to hire a nanny who is younger than twenty-one. Age, however, is just a number. There are certainly more important criteria to consider when searching for a live in nanny.

  • How well does the nanny interact with children?
  • What are the live in nanny's philosophies on discipline?
  • How much experience has she had?
  • What are her education credentials?
  • What medical training has she had?
  • How do you personally feel about the live in nanny?
These are the questions that a parent should be most concerned with. Once you are satisfied that your live in nanny is the right one for your family, age will not be an issue.
