No matter, whether you’re looking for a Mandarin, Cantonese, Indonesian or Taiwanese Nanny
A Chinese Nanny by default will be able to speak either Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese Chinese, with some being able to speak Basic English as well. These nannies are available for work as either a Chinese live in nanny or a live out one. Furthermore, if you require these nannies to cook a meal for you or your family, you may choose from a nanny that specializes in either Northern-style or southern style cuisine.
Northern style Chinese cuisines will typically consist of Dumplings, noodles and other starchy dishes that is ideal for the cold, harsh, and dry weather of northern China. These type of dishes will typically have strong bold flavors, with popular seasonings that include the use of soy sauce, ginger, garlic, scallions, vinegar, leeks, star of anise, sweet and chili bean sauces. Most of the northern Chinese nannies are from either Beijing, Shandong, Chengdu, and Shanghai.
Southern-style Chinese cuisines include dishes such as sticky or glutinous rice, pickled dishes, steamed fish, and wild vegetables. Hot pots and frying in oil is the preferred method of cooking when it comes to this style of food. Whereas wheat flour would be the staple ingredient for Northern Style Chinese cuisines, Southern-style Chinese cuisine typically consists of rice as the staple ingredient. Southern style cuisines are famous for their spiciness and the use of a wide variety of ingredients.
An Indonesian Nanny will, for the most part, be able to speak Mandarin Chinese, Indonesian, and English. They are also available as either a live-in or live-out nanny. Aside from nanny duties, they are also available as an Indonesian Maid for when you require additional help around the house. They are able to provide housekeeping services such as vacuuming the carpet, sweeping and mopping the floors, preparing a meal, washing, drying, and folding laundry or just general tidying of the house.
A Taiwanese Nanny will speak Mandarin Chinese as well as Taiwanese and Fujianese, with some being able to speak English as well. If you’re in need of a Taiwanese Nanny, please let us know as soon and give us enough time to find one as these type of nannies are more difficult to come by.
If you are looking to hire a live in nanny, then they will be considered full-time nannies and are available for work either 5 days a week with 2 days off (typically Saturday and Sunday, although negotiable) or 6 days a week with them taking 2 days off every other weekend to go back home and rest. So essentially, they will stay at your house for 2 weeks straight but will take every other weekend off for a period of 2 days.
If you are looking to hire a live out nanny, then they are considered part time nannies and are available for work at any given time block but would require a minimum of 3-4 hours per day (depending on availability), with 3 days per week minimum.
Then, as far as transportation is concerned, most of the nannies don’t have a vehicle to get to and from work, but if you are near some sort of public transportation, ie – Bus line, Metro, then perhaps something can be worked out so that logistically, they can get to your place without you having to worry about how they would arrive. However, if public transportation is out of the question, then other options will have to be considered. Such as picking them up or dropping them off on their off days or you can call a cab or uber to their location to get them.
