Dartmoor Nanny

A nanny may be a qualified child carer and/or be experienced in childcare. Qualified nannies / nursery nurses are generally trained to provide care and educational development for children from birth to 7 years. Nannies may be employed on a live-in or live-out basis. This will depend upon the domestic circumstances and preferences of the family. It should be pointed out, however, that live-out nannies usually expect to earn more than live-in nannies.

The role of a Nanny
A nanny should work in partnership with the family, taking responsibility for the safety and development of the children. A nannies specific duties include the children’s laundry, maintaining the cleanliness of equipment, toys and rooms used by the children and, if required, the preparation of the children’s meals. Nannies are also expected to drop off and collect children from schools or nurseries. Other activities such as visits to the swimming pool and library will also be the responsibility of the nanny so as to promote the social and educational development of the children.

A nanny is not normally required to undertake general household duties unless this is specifically agreed within the job description.
