What does a Nanny do?
A nanny is responsible for providing care for an individual or multiple children, toddlers or infants within a household. Some nannies are also responsible for arranging playdates, reading, bathing, children's laundry, and feeding. A nanny can either be live-in, where they stay and live with the family during the weekdays or live-out. Some nannies also perform household chores. Generally, nannies are employed by families or find opportunities through varying nanny agencies.
A high school diploma or equivalent along with 3 years Child Care experience, including infant care, is required for nanny positions. Valid and current First Aid and CPR certifications are also required. Successful nannies are deeply compassionate, energetic and possess excellent communication skills.
