What are the responsibilities for a nanny?

A nanny’s first priority should always be the care and well-being of the child. Nannies work within the guidelines established by the parents to help foster growth and personal development in the child. The partnership established between the parents and nanny help encourage a sense of security in the child, and allow for normal emotional development.

Many nannies are also willing to do household duties, such as laundry and light housework. The nanny should be focused on completing tasks related to the child, including upkeep of children’s rooms, entertaining them, disciplining them, and caring for them.

Each family has different rules and philosophies, just as children have different personalities and needs. It is crucial that you take the time to form a working agreement that leaves no room for misinterpretation and ample room for a successful work relationship.

What is a typical salary for a nanny?

Several factors affect your salary including years of experience, number of children under your care, job duties, and hours to be worked. When calculating a salary, be sure to consider overtime pay, vacation pay, raises, and medical benefits.
