Live-In Nanny Expectations and Responsibilities

Live in nannies typically work five days a week and have two days off. They are provided with a private bedroom.

Live in nannies generally:

  • Get children ready in the morning and take them to school — either by dropping them off at the bus stop or driving them
  • Take children to extracurricular activities
  • Provide meals to children while actively on duty
  • Help children with homework
  • Assist children with bathing and maintaining healthy hygienic habits
  • Organize and maintain children’s bedrooms, closets and toys
  • Do children’s laundry and maintain their wardrobe
  • Potentially provide light housekeeping services, grocery shopping, etc.

There are many advantages to be a live in nanny — no commuting, job security, a feeling of family, steady pay, comfortable living arrangements and an easier adjustment to children and their families.
