Why hire a Nanny in Bangkok


Choosing the right nanny can be a time-consuming and stressful process especially in a foreign country where many people speak little or no English. By using BangkokNannies.com it does not need to be though. We source, pre-interview and then advertise nannies and maids who have the skills and experience to support your family.

For many families, hiring a nanny enables them to focus on their own work as a nanny can provide a complete childcare package offering flexibility for parents and stability for children with the added benefit of personalised care, provided within the familiar surroundings of the home environment.

Many of the nannies remain in contact with their employers long after they have relocated or repatriated as she often becomes a cherished and extended member of the family. Now, finding the right nanny for your family has never been easier or more cost-effective thanks to BangkokNannies.com.


The role of the nanny.


Nannies work on a live-out or live-in arrangement, providing care for children on a shared or sole charge basis. In addition to the care provided, a nanny will perform nursery duties to include washing and ironing for the children, keeping their bedrooms and play areas tidy, preparing home-cooked meals for the children and will also make sure that common areas such as the kitchen are kept clean and tidy. A Nanny/Maid will do more as the title suggests, by including housekeeping as part of the role. Nanny/Maids will typically work for families where the children are at school or kindergarden for part of the day.


A live-in nanny can offer more flexibility to include earlier starts or working later into the evenings. This offers further choice to families who may have demanding careers or other commitments. Live-in nannies should be provided with adequate accommodation, not shared with the children (if possible) and the accommodation should be available for your nanny to use on her days off (if needed) and not only during the hours that she is on duty.


A live-out nanny will work set hours on specific days each week, she has the Bangkok traffic to contend with on the way to work and then again on her way home. Her working hours will typical be between 8-10 hours per day. Any additional hours should be paid for as extra hours at the end of each shift. Evening and weekend babysitting should also be agreed in advance and paid for on top of the basic rate.

    We hired through this agency 12 months ago and we were so lucky – our nanny is a absolute gem. Now we just hired a maid too to help her.
