Nannies are hired employees of the family and work with an initial 1-year agreement. They work whatever hours and days the family needs and may do shopping and provide transportation for the children, usually in the family car. A nanny is responsible for everything regarding the care and feeding of the children. This may include the children’s laundry, keeping their areas straight, meals and cleaning up after a meal. It does not include heavier housework such as vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, etc.
Nannies are paid a salary or hourly wage and the family is responsible for paying the employers share of her taxes and social security. While the job description may vary with each family, nannies expect to work full time hours and look for benefits such as health insurance and paid vacation time as any employee would. Benefits also vary with each family. This will all be discussed when a representative of Nancy’s Nannies, Inc. meets with the family, in your home, to complete the family application.
