HWS Supporting Excellence in Nanny Caregiving

HomeWork Solutions' clients who hire a nanny to provide childcare do so knowing that they have chosen the most expensive form of childcare. For most, this involves some sacrifices, cutting back expenses in other areas of the household. Hiring a nanny, however, provides the family much needed flexibility in scheduling, and allows the children to stay in their home every day receiving the close personal caregiving of the family's nanny.

In all other childcare settings - childcare centers, pre-schools and primary schools - the caregivers have opportunities for continued professional development via conferences, in-service education and even peer mentoring. A nanny, on the other hand, has to search out these opportunities. Once found, nannies often realize that paying for quality continuing education is outside their budgets.
