About Bcn Ideal Services
Is there anything more important in order to be able to relax after a long work day than coming back to a clean house? How can parents provide their children with what they need while working a full-time job, when raising children is already a full-time job itself? BCN Ideal Services know that finding the right answers to these questions can be a struggle for many families, but they can help.
BCN Ideal Services aims to be the link between families and passionate, experienced, and reliable staff. They are not just a placement agency—they take care of the entire recruitment and hiring process, from the selection process to legal advice when it comes to labour questions, as well as 24/7 support. Their extensive experience and dedication, which has earned them a five-star reputation, is something that they look for in their staff too, focusing on a careful selection of candidates, and on fostering long-term relationships where both families and home care staff receive top- quality attention and respect.

The team make sure each nanny is selected on a one-to-one basis, after careful consideration of many factors, making sure the nanny is the right fit for each family in particular. Nannies work with a holistic approach, ensuring they provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to develop their skills. This may include learning support, healthy meal preparation, chaperoning, and party sessions.

“I want our caregivers to have the same level of commitment to rendering their service with care as I would if I was doing the service myself. That is why our in-person interviews are very important. Firstly we are looking for nannies that have a professional approach to their career. Secondly we are looking for nannies who are educated and well-experienced in their career. We expect our nannies to be well prepared, prompt, and punctual. In the case of BCN Ideal Services, we look for nannies that can blend with their client really well,” says cofounder Lyn.

How families can prepare for the arrival of their nanny or housekeeper
Here’s a list of essentials:
- contact information should be to hand – important numbers should be easily accessible (who to contact within the family in case of an emergency, police, fire, paediatrician, school, etc.)
- introduce your nanny to the local neighbourhood area
- inform your nanny if there will be visitors or tradesmen coming into the house and who she or he can invite into the house
- prepare the necessary access in advance for nannies to be able to drop off or pick up from school or nursery
- familiarisation with all important household appliances
- special information regarding pets
- safety considerations such as medication and allergies,
- bathing habits and rituals for the kids, and playtime should be discussed thoroughly with the nanny
