A Nanny gives dedicated one-to-one care of children in the home, ensuring they are completely cared for in both their physical and mental well-being. A nanny’s sole responsibility is to care for the children, keep their rooms neat and tidy, care for the children’s clothes, cook their meals and ensure they organise all activities, play dates and outings. If you need split support with childcare and housekeeping, then a nanny-housekeeper or housekeeper-nanny may better suit your needs, dependant on the split of duties.

A full-time Nanny cares for children from the moment they wake up, to what they eat, do and play throughout the day, creating schedules and routines to encourage children’s development both cognitive and social behaviour.
