Job Description for Nanny or Aupair
Nannies or aupairs (pronounced "oh-pairs") provide safe and nurturing care to one child or multiple children. Nannies are excellent multitaskers because even when caring for just one child, there can be numerous demands on their attention. Nannies are much different than babysitters because they usually provide their childcare services full-time. They assist children with everything from homework, potty training, dressing, feeding, table manners, play time and more. Nannies usually cook for a child and feed them throughout the day in accordance with the parents' dietary guidelines/preferences. Some nannies live in a family's home full-time while others come and go when their shifts end and begin.
