What is a nanny and what do they do?
Nannies are childcare specialists who participate in the social, emotional, and intellectual development of their charges. They are often expected to work with children on such areas a language development, potty training, social manners, homework, and more
A Nanny’s primary concern is the welfare of your child or children. Routine tasks may include:
Prepare simple, nutritious meals for the children.
Clean up the kitchen after children’s meals (including dishes, counters, and loading or unloading the dishwasher)
Perform basic tasks related to children’s hygiene: bathing, brushing teeth, hair grooming.
Wash, dry, fold, and put away children’s laundry.
Straightening up children’s bedrooms and play areas.
Periodic toy sanitization
Periodic review of children’s clothing to remove outgrown and out of season items.
Types of Nanny Placements
Nannies (Live-in or live-out, full or part-time): Our nannies come with a range of experience, certifications and education; for example, Early Childhood Development, Child Psychology, Teaching/Tutoring, Nursing, CPR/First Aid Certifications and more, upon request.
A permanent full-time nanny manages your children’s daily routine and becomes a partner for your family. Full-time nannies generally work 30-55 hours per week. Nannies must commit to a minimum of one year.
Our summer nannies are active, bright, and energetic college students and schoolteachers from across the country. They can provide daily care and assist with your children’s daily summer activities and accompany you on vacation. Summer nannies typically begin their positions in late May/early June and conclude in August. We encourage clients to begin the summer nanny search process as early as March.
A “family assistant” is a hybrid role combining assistant and childcare responsibilities. Many families with school-aged children will transition from a full-time nanny to a family assistant in order to make good use of school time hours when the wee ones are away.
A permanent part-time nanny has the same training and qualifications as a full-time nanny but works a shorter week. These positions are typically sought for after-school care but can also cover morning or daytime help. Finding a part-time nanny can be especially challenging as most professional nannies prefer to work full-time. Hours are less than 30 per week.
