Hiring a Nanny - What to Look For?
Generally, nannies care for children full-time while their parents work or are otherwise away from home. They are more invested in a child's development and well-being than sitters as they typically create a daily schedule of activities to nurture the children they care for. Therefore nanny services can include a range of tasks such as meal preparation, light household tasks, driving the children to and from activities and assisting them with homework.
As a nanny has greater responsibilities than a typical babysitter
they therefore command a higher salary. In addition to basic safety qualifications, they usually have advanced childcare training and / or many years of experience. Often, they earn a weekly salary (based on hourly expectations) and have taxes deducted from their paychecks and work year-round for a family.
