A single critical motivator for using a specialist childcare recruitment agency in your nanny search

Quite often families hesitate to use nanny agencies due the costs involved and rather choose to do so privately through internet sites and social media. Hiring a care giver to take care of your child or children is unquestionably the most important hire you’ll ever make.  It consequently makes perfect sense to entrust a Specialist Caregiver Recruiter with the critical selection process.

Appointing and retaining the right care giver will greatly affect your child’s feelings about himself and the world.  Positive, stable and consistent relations with a caregiver will go a long way in creating and maintaining your child’s feelings of security, optimism and self-worth.

A child who is securely attached to a caregiver will be relaxed and comfortable with that person nearby.  She’ll feel confident exploring slightly beyond her caregiver’s grasp because she knows she can rely on that person to respond in a way that’s predictable and reassuring if she needs help or gets hurt.

Research suggests that children take a significant amount of time to form attachments to caregivers, so they are less likely to form attachments if frequent caregiver changes occur.  It has also been reported that there is a relationship between the number of caregiver losses experienced by a toddler and the likelihood that the child may be more prone to being socially withdrawn or aggressive with peers [Howes & Hamilton, 1993].

Statistics show that the turnover of Caregivers hired via Professional Agencies is significantly lower than turnover of caregivers who are hired privately.

So therefore one should not just look at the costs involved in using an agency but really the overall value to you and your family.
