09 May 5 Ways a Holiday Nanny Can Save Your Family Vacation
Wait, why would you need a babysitter on a family vacation?
Because we all know how crazy, stressful and exhausting traveling with little ones can be, especially in a foreign country. Have you ever returned home after a family trip and felt like you needed a vacation after your vacation?
Well, there is a way to still have a fun and relaxed vacation with your whole family: Get some help!
Here are 5 examples of how a holiday nanny can help:
1. Date night.
Take time out for just the two of you at a special restaurant and enjoy romantic, uninterrupted adult conversation. Here in Spain, most restaurants don’t even begin serving dinner until 8PM, after your kids’ bedtime. Holiday nannies are used to babysitting in the hotel environments and know how to give your kids the peaceful sleep they need after busy days of sightseeing.
2. Local knowledge and support.
Many holiday nannies are multi-lingual and can help you communicate in Spanish and Catalan as you try to navigate your way with hotel staff, waitstaff, and taxi drivers. They also will know the city and where you can go to buy the best toys, more diapers, kid snacks or other essentials.
Don’t cut your day at the beach or sightseeing short. Our holiday vacation nannies will stay with your kids for naptime while you continue to explore.
4. An extra set of hands.
Strollers, booster seats, diaper bags, toys, snacks, beach towels…traveling light can be tough on a family vacation, so let a babysitter lighten your load while you actual enjoy the journey.
5. Kid-friendly activities and entertainment.
Let’s face it, parents don’t always want to see or do the same thing as kids do on vacation. For example, spending hours at Tibidabo Amusement Park in Barcelona might not be your ideal way to explore all that Barcelona has to offer. But with a nanny, you can be free for a couple of hours to stroll down Passeig de Gracia, peruse the Picasso Museum or learn more about the history of Barcelona’s Roman ruins and everyone is happy.
Hiring an experienced holiday nanny for vacation childcare can be a lifeline for everyone. At the Nanny Line, we personally screen and interview all of our experienced nannies and babysitters. That way you can rest-assured that your whole family will have the fun and relaxing family vacation you planned.
