With the economy these days, it is often necessary for both parents to be employed. Choosing the best source of care for your infant or pre-school aged child can be a challenge. When you weigh the pros and cons, you will find that professional nanny services are an excellent choice. Why choose a nanny agency over a private babysitter or even a daycare facility? Check the social media sites and you'll find nanny agencies in your area.

For one thing, choosing a nanny from an agency offers peace of mind. A reliable nanny service will employee nannies that are experienced and put through background checks. This means less worry on your part. It can save you the time and expense of having to run a background check yourself or ask for personal references.

Speaking of saving money, did you know that hiring a nanny from an agency can save you money? Most daycare facilities will charge considerably more by the year. You'll be less likely to find a daycare center on a social media website, so you're going to have to spend gas money searching around town for a suitable facility.

One of the main benefits of hiring a nanny service is that your child will receive individualized attention. He or she will not have to directly compete with other children for the caregiver's attention. Your nanny is able to form a bond as the nanny and child get to know each other on a personal level. This rarely happens in daycare. In a classroom setting, the daycare supervisor must organize activities for a group of children. A nanny can organize activities according to your child's preferences and personality.

Many parents prefer using a nanny agency for another reason as well. In daycare, your child will be exposed to illnesses from other children. When you hire a nanny, your child is less likely to catch as many colds.

You will also find that professional nanny services offer greater adaptability. Rather than work a rigid 9-5 schedule, your personal nanny will often work with you to accommodate your needs. Whether you need child care at odd hours or unexpectedly during the night, your nanny is reliable.

Does your child have special needs or health issues? A professional nanny will understand these needs. If a special diet is required, your nanny can provide this. Daycare centers often stick to one menu for all children.

Studies show that children learn better with one-on-one instruction. If your child requires more assistance in reading or homework, why pay the additional cost of a tutor? Most nannies will be willing to help your child learn and grow through individualized attention.

If you've ever used daycare, you may have been frustrated over the inability to check up on your child in your absence. Employing a professional nanny allows you to phone home or your nanny's personal cell phone any time you wish. To many parents, this is so much better than waiting for a "progress report" at the end of the day.
