Day-to-day responsibilities and duties as a nanny

Being a nanny is not the easiest job in the world. It is a job with a lot of responsibilities. Normally a nanny is a person who takes care of children when their parents are away for work. Many busy parents go for the option of hiring a nanny to look after their child. This is the safest way to look after your child because nanny gives the individual attention to the child and your child is the main priority of the nanny. Therefore nannies should be able to cope up with all the work that they are assigned. Before hiring a nanny all the details regarding the work she has to do and the number of hours that she has to work should be clearly stated in the agreement. You should not assign extra work to the nanny because she is already doing a hard job by looking after your child and household work. If you want her to work few hours extra, you have to make sure that she gets paid for every extra hour she works.

In the break, nannies can sit and relax for a bit or else have a little nap.
