Question:

What are normal nanny job duties?

Nannies are expected to take on all child related duties. Typically, nannies are responsible for the children’s laundry, cleaning of the children’s bedroom and playroom and tidying up the kitchen after meals.

You may also be asked to do some grocery shopping, run child related errands, arrange play dates and possibly take the children to school or to doctor or dentist appointments.

Some families will ask that the nanny take care of the family’s laundry and some would appreciate it if the nanny would get the family dinner started for them.
