What is a Daily Nanny?

A full time or daily nanny will look after your children in your home either while you are at work or alongside you, depending on whether it is a sole charge or shared care role.  Most full time daily nanny roles are sole charge while parents work away from the home.

What are Daily Nanny Duties?

Duties include the organisation of the children’s belongings, preparing and feeding nutritious meals, organising playdates and going on outings, facilitating play activities and age-appropriate education.

The nanny is not expected to do housework, chores or cook family meals unless this is agreed before the position is accepted.
