Theres a chance youll be on holiday youll have to attend a meeting for your job. When you have to be apart from your children for business or personal reasons, heres some tips in checking out nannies to mind your cherub-cheeked angels. The ways to go at checking an agency or babysitting service are slightly different then how youd go about a background check in the United States. But, there are ways around this. In checking out a sitters background, however, please watch how to handle doing this through their cultural laws, rules and traditions.
If youre still skittish in looking into an agencys credentials on your own, find recommendations into how a nanny/sitter should be interviewed. Get your leads from the travel agency you used to book your trip. Perhaps you can check into the nanny agencies stateside they may have offices in Europe and find out from their services how to best interview a sitter works in Europe. And, remember, the potential sitter is looking into you as youre looking into he or she. Rapports the first and foremost issue in this case, both with you and with your children.
Also, do not overlook how the pay rates work in Europe and the taxes needed to pay for these caregivers while youre on caregiver leave. Paying the sitter may have to go through the service youve looked into and decided on, a gratuity may be added in advance because they know when youll be leaving and returning, and, in some cases, an insurance policy could be taken out on your sitters life. Meaning that, if something happens while on their care giver’s watch, the agency assumes partial responsibility. However things work regarding care given to your children, its wise if the rules and customs are adhered to and looked into microscopically.
