posted in: Nanny | 0

Many families in Thailand hire a nanny or two to take care of their children. This makes us curious to know the average number of months or years that nannies stay with their families. The figure can tell a lot about service satisfaction in this industry. The more years that nannies stay with the family they work with means the more and more families trust their kids with nannies.

It’s hard to determine the average number of years that nannies stay with their families because there’s no official number available. However, based on our experience, we assume that it is between 3 and 5 years. At Kiidu, some of our nannies even work for the same family for longer years. 

Having a loyal nanny who stays with you for three or more years offers a big advantage for your family. Here are some of the benefits of having a loyal nanny:

1. Closer relationship with the kids

Generally, the longer nannies stay with the same family, the closer their bond is with the kids and even with other family members. They become like family members, and in many cases, they take care of the kids like their own. Loyal nannies do not just take care of the kids but they become the parents’ partners in nurturing the kids and providing them with a caring environment that promotes growth and development. 

2. High level of dedication to work

Long-term nannies are generally highly dedicated to their work and can provide excellent quality service to the family. Because they have been with the family for many years, they are already familiar with the different personalities, preferences, and needs in the household. They can customize their service to meet the demands. They have already mastered their responsibilities and routines, allowing them to become excellent at what they do.

3. They work with less supervision

Overseeing someone to the full details of their job can be stressful and time-consuming. Imagine having a nanny who has no idea what to do and how to do things, and you have to dictate every single action. That’s a headache.

Nannies with years of experience in the family typically work with less supervision. You don’t have to tell them often what they need to do because they already know it. They have already mastered their craft and because of that, you can leave them with minimal supervision. Of course, it’s a different thing if you don’t trust your nanny. 

4. Fosters mutual respect and trust

It can be hard to trust someone who just worked for you. Trust is not developed overnight, but it just comes naturally with years of working together. Having someone you trust to take care of and support your kids especially when you are not there can give you peace of mind. It assures you that your kids are safe even if you are not there. 

Moreover, when parents and nannies work together for a longer period, mutual respect is developed. Mutual respect is key to a successful employer-nanny relationship. Parents and nannies who respect each other minimize conflicts in the family. It also helps instill good values in the children because both parents and the nanny are consistent in disciplining the kids.

It’s nice to have a loyal nanny or someone that your kids may consider family. If you are looking for one, we can help you. 

At Kiidu, we have nannies with years of experience in nanny services. They are trustworthy, reliable, and experienced in different types of responsibilities associated with their jobs. Many of our nannies have special skills such as driving, cooking foreign cuisines, and teaching kids to sing and dance. They can work with you for the long term, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of having a loyal nanny.
