Who are they?
Nannies offer sole charge or proxy parenting as well as working alongside you as parents, depending on your preferences. A Nanny is often responsible for all nursery duties, cooking, and cleaning the rooms of the children they care for. However, they do not usually partake in any other housekeeping duties. Nannies will organise playdates and accompany your child to any extra-curricular activities as well as assist with homework supervision and reading. Nannies typically work with children from birth up to 8 years.
