Indians usually do not leave children with babysitters, instead, extended family and in-laws help raise children. However, working mothers in nuclear families are increasingly starting to leave their children at daycare centres and enrolling the help of nannies. If you have small children you may consider hiring a part- or full-time nanny. It is a good idea to network with locals and other expats to find recommendations. Also see the domestic help section for tips on hiring staff for your home.
