Hiring a Georgia Nanny Versus Placing Children in Daycare

ILLNESS

Nanny: It is often very difficult to change your plans at the last minute if your child is ill, especially if you are a working parent. If you have an ABC Nanny, you can go about your day knowing your child is being loved and cared for. Be it an ear infection, a cold, or an upset tummy, your nanny is there to lovingly care for your child. If your child gets sick at school, you will not have to leave work to go get him/her because your ABC Nanny will be more than happy to pick up and care for your child. It is also very difficult to schedule a last-minute pediatrician visit- your nanny can take care of that for you!

Daycare: Child illnesses often that you drop everything and go pick up your child immediately to prevent other children from getting sick. Oftentimes, daycares will require your pediatrician to write a release to allow your child back into the classroom, so you will have to figure out how to get your child in to be seen very quickly. In most cases, you are still required to pay the daycare whether your child is present or not!

HOME CARE

Nanny: You have so much more freedom when your nanny comes to you! You do not need to pack lunches, bottles, diapers, wipes, extra clothes or anything else. Additionally, you won’t have to wake up extremely early just so you can beat traffic in the morning and get your children where they need to be on time! You also have the advantage of flexible hours – ABC Nannies watch your children based on your schedule!

Daycare: All too often, you must rush your children to daycare and be sure that they have every conceivable thing needed during the day. This starts your family’s day on a stressed note! Many parents need to drop their children off very early before their own daily activities have started, which leaves children just waiting for their daycare teacher to come in for the day. Plus, if you are running late at the end of the day, most daycares will charge parents an outrageous $1-$2 a minute in late fees! Daycares will not adjust to fit your family needs, which will limit your options drastically.

ACTIVITIES

Nanny: You control activities that you want done during the day. You can request that your nanny designates quiet time each day devoted to educational activities, arts and crafts, reading, or any other activity you prefer. You need not worry whether your child is getting the attention they deserve! ABC Nannies are well educated, knowledgeable and extremely professional.

Daycare: There is just no opportunity for your child to ever truly have quiet time to work on anything in a roomful of other children in a daycare. Your child adapts to that environment out of necessity, and that overstimulation carries over into their behavior at home.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Nanny: If you like, your nanny can take your children out on various approved excursions, so they can play outside, have play dates with friends and enjoy all the outdoors has to offer! They will have the opportunity to enjoy making snowmen in the winter, playing in sandboxes or on swing sets in the summer, and generally being able to have fun while being as active as every child wants. The main benefit of a nanny is the knowledge that your child is just as safe as if you were with them yourself!

Daycare: Children may be taken outside for playtime, but oftentimes can get hurt or get in “kiddie arguments” where other children get too rough. Your child may end up with everything from bumps and bruises to severe bites. Daycares limit the amount of time outside because it’s too hard to control such a large group of children in this atmosphere.

FAMILY TIME

Nanny: Children are able to play and interact with siblings. One of the best benefits of having children close in age is they are able to play and grow up together! When they are able to spend quality time together it reinforces and strengthens the family bond. Your child’s siblings will often be their best friends, and quality time together is so necessary.

Daycare: Children are separated by age. Even if your children are close in age, they will likely never see each other during the day! Each age group has their own room assigned and the rooms rarely mix.

COMMUNICATION

Nanny: You will be able to contact your children at any time during the day! If you are ever wondering how your child’s day is going, you are always able to reach your nanny. Children are often thrilled to hear from their loved ones during the day!

Daycare: At daycares, teachers are stretched very thin, making it hard for you to call and check on your child. When you go to pick your children up, they are so enthused to see you that they may have already forgotten the good or bad experiences they had at the daycare.

RELATIONSHIPS

Nanny:
Individualized attention is probably the best part of having a nanny in your children’s lives! Your nanny will interact with your children one-on-one and focus on all of their needs and interests. This can include coloring, reading, music...the options are endless! Your children receive stellar care when in the hands of an in-home childcare provider. The activities implemented by your Nanny will enrich your children's lives and promote positive reinforcement. Your child will blossom and thrive as a result of personalized care.

Daycare: In a classroom environment with a high student to teacher ratio, individual attention is nearly impossible due to the needs of each child being so vastly different. Sadly, teachers often have to act as referees more than educators. Your child will be forced to interact and learn based on the needs of the group as a whole instead of on a personal level.

VACATIONS

Nanny: You can always feel free to ask your nanny to join you on vacation. This opportunity allows you to enjoy quality time with your children as well as still being able to have time for Mom and Dad! Since most ABC Nannies inevitably become part of the family, their involvement becomes so natural it almost wouldn’t feel right without them! Mom and Dad can enjoy some grownup times while the children are having a blast with your nanny!

Daycare: On vacation, childcare will often times not be available, or only available for an exorbitant fee. Depending on your destination, you will have to plan your activities in accordance with child friendly activates. Of course, this can mean stress, and that’s the last thing you want on your vacation!

HOMEWORK HELP / AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITIES

Nanny: Let’s face it, household chores and homework are tedious tasks. When you get home after a long day, you want to spend quality time with your children. Your Nanny can assist with these tasks, giving you quality time to spend with your children when you arrive home. Also, any afterschool activities that require transportation will no longer be an issue! Since your Nanny will happily bring your children to and from any destination they require, there’s no need to worry about rearranging your professional schedule to accommodate myriads of extra-curricular activities.

Daycare: Afterschool activities are great when it comes to structuring children to keep them busy, but often they do not allow time to study and
complete homework during the day. After a long day at work, it can be quite stressful on both you and your children to figure out what homework assignments the children need to have completed for the next day at school. Unfortunately, this does not leave much quality time for you and your child to spend enjoying your time together.
