Being a nanny is a rewarding and fulfilling job.
Being a nanny means you are responsible for the complete care of your employer’s children. A job description for a nanny can vary from family to family. But, every family wants you to play and have fun with the kids! Nannies get to color, take nature walks, sing songs, put together puzzles, read books, and shoot hoops all day long!
Along with playing duties include tending to each child’s basic physical needs, meal planning and preparation and laundry and clothing care. Nannies also organize play activities and outings (providing transportation when required). With the parents’ insights a nanny enforces behavioral guidelines and disciplining when appropriate. Like educators, nannies provide intellectual stimulation and language activities.
