The benefit of a nanny housekeeper

A nanny housekeeper is the perfect solution for many families to ease the burden of not just childcare, but so much more.

You’ve decided to find a nanny to help with the kids… but then you come across the term nanny housekeeper. It’s intriguing, right? Someone who can both look after the kids AND take care of some light housekeeping.

A nanny housekeeper is the perfect solution for many families to ease the burden of not just childcare, but so much more.

At mtime we call our nanny housekeepers Moncierges. They are all vetted, trained and matched to you and your family.

We like to think of the benefits of a Moncierge in terms of the tasks they can complete for you. We break that down into the four C’s - cooking, cleaning, chores and childcare. And each of those save you time so you can do more of the things you love.


Cooking dinner Every. Single. Night. Is a chore. It’s not only the actual cooking itself, it’s also choosing what to cook, catering for the different tastes in your family, buying the ingredients, preparing the meal and then cleaning up after dinner.

A nanny housekeeper or a Moncierge can ease that pressure by preparing meals of your liking that you can simply reheat and eat. 

Even if they were to dedicate just one or two hours each week to meal preparation, think of how much time that will save you in the kitchen.


A nanny housekeeper isn’t a professional cleaner. But they can help with light housekeeping and cleaning. They can wash the dishes and pack them away or pick up the toys in the playroom or vacuum the floor. 

It’s amazing how the work they do will save you precious time in your day… and give you that beautiful clean home feeling!

Every Moncierge has the ability to flex to what you need them to do. Cleaning is just one of their skills. One week you may choose to use all your hours for cleaning and none the next. The beauty is, that is your choice to make. If you are unsure of how much time you will need, our household help quiz is a great place to start. 


Whether it’s grocery shopping or a trip to the post office or folding and packing away the laundry, chores are tiresome and time consuming. Particularly when you have such little time in your day for the things you love as it is.

A nanny housekeeper can take care of those for you. You will get the best result if you have a clear list of the chores that need to be done so the Moncierge can set about ticking them off the list.


This is the big one, right? You could hire a cleaner to clean your home or use a meal service for your meals or pay someone to help you out with chores but finding someone who can do all that and also look after your children is like finding a unicorn.

Childcare is a huge part of the role of a nanny housekeeper. They can help with picking your children up after school or babysitting while you are working. Each of our Moncierges has experience in caring for children. They all have a police check, working with children check, first aid certificate and have completed modules on child safety and other related training so you can be rest assured they are skilled and qualified to care for your children.
