Any advice about how to find a nanny and how much the rates are?

Hi again
I have personally used one but I didn't like mine. If your kid is >18mths, a childcare centre would be more conducive. Most nannies in Singapore are not highly educated and would not be able to teach your kid well.

If you still want a nanny, just advertise for one in any of the motherhood forums or drop flyers (written in English and Chinese) in the housing estates around where you live.Typical charges range from S$550-700 per month, depending on your requirements.

Be warned that your kid will end up watching TV most of the time.

I never had that problem with my nanny. Maybe I was lucky that I found SAHM to be nanny for my kids. My kids learn from the kor kor and jie jie (her kids), and I only enrolled my kids in childcare at about 24 months. Even then, they went to nanny's place for bath and dinner after childcare, and we picked them after work anytime 7-9pm.

In fact, my nanny looks after my kids when they are sick and cannot attend childcare. This saves me the trouble of taking emergency leave and having to reschedule meetings etc.

How much does your nanny charge?
