What is a nanny?

A nanny is a person hired to care for children!

Nannies work at their clients’ homes and typically take on additional responsibilities for the family, such as housekeeping, errand running, meal preparation, and grocery buying. Nannies can work full-time or part-time and some live in their families’ homes.

Nannying and babysitting are not synonymous. Babysitters are frequently employed on an hourly basis as needed. Babysitters can watch children in their own homes or in the homes of their clients, and they can work any time of day or night. Nannies are paid on a weekly or monthly basis as employees for a certain number of hours.

Most nannies will do a combination of the following tasks:

  • Supervise and monitor children for safety
  • Prepare meals and snacks
  • Change diapers
  • Administer medication to children under the direction of parents
  • Organize games and activities
  • Assist children with hygiene, such as brushing their teeth or bathing
  • Plan and initiate naps and nap times
  • Help children learn through reading or educational games
  • Provide a good role model for the children to emulate

Nannies who work in their clients’ homes may help with housework and laundry, among other things. They may even be asked to accompany the family on vacation and help with tasks like dry cleaning and supermarket shopping.
