UAE’s #1 Source for Babysitters and Nannies in the UAE

Looking to hire a babysitter or nanny in the UAE?




Living in Dubai as an expatriate separates you from your extended family who would ordinarily be part of your support system. Creating a workable support system for you and your children is important. This role is often played by the child-minder, babysitter or nanny, so finding the right person to fit you and your family’s needs is key and critical./p>

Finding a full time or live in nanny to work in Dubai is not difficult. The difficulty is firstly finding the right person, and secondly, the legalities of employing and sponsoring a foreigner to work in the UAE.

Sponsoring a full time nanny in Dubaihas a cost implication attached to it, and requires an application for work visa and the maintenance of that visa going forward. Hiring without the correct documentation can attract hefty fines and could put your residency in Dubai at risk if you are a foreigner working and living in Dubai.

There are a variety of options open to families living in Dubai to choose from which are hassle-free depending on their preference and suitability.

Part time childcare is popular with parents (specifically mothers), who work half day, freelance, study and attend lectures, or who just want the odd day off from parenting. In this case you would use a nanny service in Dubai who would take care of all the employment legalities under their banner. If you are happy with the services of a particular nanny you may be in a position to request her to come on certain specified days every week. This ensures that your children have consistency in their babysitter, and easier for you to secure the same person on a weekly basis. If your hiring is random then you may not always be able to secure the same child-minder if they are booked for another job.

If you childcare requirement is limited to the odd night out or special occasion, then hiring a babysitter or nanny by the hour is the most suitable option available to you. You could expect to pay approximately AED 35 – AED 80 per hour for this service. There is usually a minimum of 3-4 hours engagement which would usually suit most child-minding requirements.

Choosing the right air-conditioning system for your residential, commercial or industrial space is important. An air-conditioning system that is too small for the space will draw on additional energy and runs the risk of burning out. An air-conditioning unit that is too powerful for the space it is installed in, will cut on and off continuously. Measure your own space or get a professional installer to come and do this for you. There are also online services that will assist you in choosing the right air-conditioner for your space just by entering the room dimensions into the online program. Always ask for professional advice before purchasing. The installation of your air-conditioning system should always be done by a licensed technician. Poor installation can have large impact on your electricity consumption and the life span of your unit.
