What is expected from a nanny?
Nannies can either live in the home or out of the home, but the duties of each will be similar. A live-in nanny will require private accommodation within the home or its grounds, while a live-out nanny will reside nearby and will only be in the property during agreed working hours. Nannies cover a wide range of childcare responsibilities and can provide full-time care for children.
Depending on the child's age, a nanny can transport the child to and from nursery or school, arrange playdates, help with homework and offer educational activities. Nannies can also undertake light household chores, generally focusing on those relating to the children of the family. This could include preparing nutritious meals, taking care of children's laundry and ensuring bedrooms and play areas are kept organised, tidy and clean.
A live-in nanny becomes resident in your home and can provide, where needed, a 24-hour service.
