An experienced caregiver hired to supervise, interact, protect, nurture and provide “all aspects of care” to children on a full time or part time permanent basis.


A nanny is a person employed to care for a child in its own home. Nannies are generally fully invested in a child’s development and well-being. This often means that a nanny will take care of a child full-time while the parents work. Depending on the family’s schedule, sometimes they might need someone to take care of the kids a few times a week but want a care provider who will be more involved than a conventional baby sitter. In this case, you would hire a part-time nanny.

Commonly, nannies have more responsibilities than a baby sitter would. They are tasked with creating daily schedules for the children, engaging them in activities that will ensure healthy mental, physical, and emotional growth. Nannies are also often tasked with preparing meals, helping with household work, taking the children to and from their activities, and they also help with homework.
