What does Nanny do?

As a Nanny, you’ll take care of children, keep them safe and clean, plan meals for them and organize creative and educational activities based on their age. Occasionally, you’ll need to pick them up from school or other extracurricular activities.

If you love working – and playing – with children and, also feel comfortable handling the less appealing tasks, such as changing diapers and tidying up children’s rooms, we’d like to meet you.

Ultimately, you’ll reassure parents that, even when they’re not around, their children remain in a safe and pleasant environment.

Nanny responsibilities

  • Organizing creative activities and educational games
  • Preparing kids’ meals and feeding them (including bottle-feeding for babies)
