Nannies will of course turn up on time and keep the kids safe! But they’ll do loads more than that.
Firstly, the nanny will pick up your kids from school and take them home to your house, or to any after school activities. At home, they can supervise homework, cook simple meals and snacks, and help the kids get ready for bed.
They’re all looking forward to having fun with the kids, playing games and other activities and using their skills in music, art, sports etc to engage and bond with the children.
You can expect the nanny to tidy up after themselves – although they aren’t a cleaner. If time allows it’s reasonable to ask them to do some light housework such as putting away a shopping delivery or loading/unloading the dishwasher.
We have an active online community where the nannies swap tips for crafts, cooking, outdoor activities and trips and we share new ideas with them monthly, so they’re always armed with new ideas.
