Daytime Nanny for a few days only

Postby The Ref » Mon, 27 Mar 2017 7:26 pm

I have some family coming to Singapore for a week with small children (between 2 and 4yo) and I was going to suggest getting a daytime nanny for the days they are here.

Assuming they wish to be fully legit, how would you go about it and what recommendations would you have, given there is not a standard recruitment process.

Thanks

There is hardly any market in Singapore for such nannies as most people rely on FDW and families.
I would try to find some daycare agencies or even kindergartens and ask there. In the most optimistic scenarios staff from such places may agree (under their current employment or not) or may know somebody interested.

You would be hard pressed to find a short-term nanny in most part of the world. Unless it is for a brief dropoff that is attached to another entity e.g care for the young at mall facility while you shop. I did not have any luck in the past in SG. All the daycare requires long term enrollment / commitment.

I am sure if you pay well they will be happy to bend their strict rules but it can become expensive this way. For that, I would expect at least S$200-300 a day for such adhoc job.

Not so ex. Private nurses and caregivers sometimes do opt for nanny jobs, I know a couple :) . Between 80 to 120 a day. 10 hours maximum.
