INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The role of a yaya in today’s world is a great deal different. Mothers’ today maintain the ultimate authority and control over how their children are cared for by the nanny. Modern living requires long hours of social activities of parents or guardians which are the reasons for the demand of the services offered by nannies to look after their child/children and to do some related household management. The demand for this service increases due to modernization. As we all know life is hectic, fast paced, fun and perpetually changing. Every family is different and has their own unique set of needs and wants. This study will show that there is a need for acquiring yayas service that can be helpful to the specific market. Background of the study

Household helpers have become indispensable part of almost every part of almost every upper class homes or even middle class homes whose leads have enough income to employ aides. Traditionally, nannies were servants in large households and reported directly to the lady of the house. Today, modern nannies, like other domestic workers, may live in or out of the house depending on their circumstances and those of their employers. Professional nannies are usually certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, qualified in first aid, and have a degree or extensive training in child development. There are many employment agencies that specialize in childcare and online services that aid in finding available nannies. In the 19th and early 20th century, the position was usually known as a "nurse", and was, as for many childcare jobs, invariably female. In a great house the nurse was a more senior member of the household staff and ran her own domain, a suite of rooms called the nursery, supported by at least one assistant, known as a nursemaid (or nursery maid). Because of their deep involvement in raising the children of the family, nannies were often remembered with great affection and treated more kindly than the junior servants. Nannies may have remained in the employment of the same aristocratic family for years, looking after successive generations of children. In 2012 in the Philippine setting, an estimated 866,000 comprised the informal section of the labor force, a majority of which were aged 15 years old, and some from far flung provinces.

History of the Project

We come up to this project because of the current trend of having a Law pertaining to the Nannies concerning to their rights to have an equal treatment as to the other workers having a minimum salary which is “Republic Act No. 10361 AN ACT INSTITUTING POLICIES FOR THE PROTECTION AND WELFARE OF DOMESTIC WORKERS” also known as “Batas Kasambahay” even though they’re not that educated but skilled in the field they chose. We are inspired to have a study on this kind of business because of the recommendation of our beloved Dr. Lily Mendoza giving rise to our interest to this kind of field of business. We tend to use the term “Nanny or Yaya in Filipino Term” for someone who can be left in sole charge of children for a given length of time during the day, or all day. Nanny/Yaya is someone who provides care for your child inside or outside of your home. Nannies were present in the households of the European colonial empires throughout the world.
