This is a professional childcarer who may or may not have a formal childcare qualification but will have experience of looking after children. Their primary responsibility is the everyday care and welfare of the children and nurturing them emotionally, physically and intellectually. Any domestic duties are normally related to the children, such as washing and ironing for the children, tidying the children’s rooms and preparation of healthy balanced meals. Work is normally during office hours and is unsupervised (sole charge). A nanny may live in with the family or live out.
