A Nanny is a dedicated individual who is employed to have sole (when both parents are working/out of the house) or shared charge (with the at-home parent) of your children in your home. Many have nursery nurse training or childcare qualifications, but this is not a legal requirement. Most nannies will be tasked with preparing meals, helping with household work (dishes, laundry, etc.), driving the children to and from activities and assisting with homework. Many nannies have their own place of residence (and are called live-out nannies), but there are some nannies who live with the family (called live-in nannies). Wages and salaries vary according to location (Central London is more expensive than most counties), experience of employee, number of children and responsibilities. Qualified nannies are the most expensive option.
