We have put the following information together as general guidance for parents planning to hire a live-out daily nanny or live-in nanny in London.
Live-in & Live-out Daily Nannies, Temporary or Permanent Nannies
DAILY NANNY (LIVE-OUT NANNY)
Daily nannies and live in nannies work inside the family home caring for the children who offer a safe, encouraging, and stimulating atmosphere while attending to all the child's everyday needs. In addition a nanny will promote educational and social development by arranging and promoting age appropriate activities while in their charge.
A professional career nanny will normally be qualified, while other nannies will have gained acceptable experience and trust, but will typically have verifiable experience of caring for little ones and earned excellent references. Certainly all good nannies are required have a clean up-to-date DBS police checks, and a current date first-aid certificate.
There are different types of nannies in London depending on the families needs. Principally nannies are either Daily Nannies (same as live-out nanny) who will present to the family home on a daily basis, and there are Live-in nannies who will normally reside in the family home.
Daily nannies in London generally work between 7:30 am or 8:00 am and 7:00 pm, arriving before the parents leave for work, and in time to prepare the children breakfast, help them with dressing, and to do the school run if required.
During the day a nanny will attend to all nursery duties, as well as keeping the little ones bedrooms, bathrooms, and playrooms hygienic and orderly, and bed linen and towels fresh. A Nanny will similarly do the child's washing and ironing, and shop and cook balanced meals. They will regularly tidy up after the children and ensure that before the parents return there is the calm atmosphere of a peaceful home with toys packed away and children freshly bathed and ready in their pyjamas.
Depending on the age of the baby or child, the nanny can also make up formula and sterilise baby bottles, making certain the continuation of the babies feeding and napping routine. Daily nannies or Live-in nannies should be able to make and batch freeze purees from scratch, and plan, shop, and cook nourishing healthy meals for older children. Nannies will additionally take the children out on a daily basis to parks, classes, play-dates, play groups etc and in so doing the nanny will support their physical, social, emotional, creative, and intellectual development. With older children nannies will be on hand to supervise homework assignments.
Nannies will also stack and un-stack the dishwasher, run errands, and be at home to receive parcels, work-men, or sit with children who are not well. Nannies do not normally do general house work, dog walking, or cook for the parents, but it is sometimes possible to agree extra duties with the individual nanny at the time of booking.
RESIDENTIAL NANNY (LIVE-IN NANNY)
Live-in nannies in London will perform the same duties as the daily live-out nanny but can provide even more flexibility; usually working 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, as well as babysitting twice a week.
A live-in nanny is more cost effective, requiring less salary, as they're provided with board and lodging by the family. The nanny accommodation is usually at least their own bedroom and bathroom, and can be a good childcare option for the family if the home as a enough of space.
Above all nannies offer personalised care for little ones, unlike nursery provision where it's unlikely that carers can give children their individual attention for very long. Likewise, having a nanny at home allows parents to attend work if a child is sick and unable to attend school or nursery. It's reassuring for parents to know that their little ones are with a responsible trustworthy adult who they can feel safe with.
Nannies can also sometimes travel with the family if required and it is normal to find nanny candidates from a diversity of nationalities, including the UK, who are able to support children in a number of languages, however all nannies need to to be able speak fluent English.
TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT NANNY
Temporary nannies in London are booked for a variety of reasons.
A temporary nanny may work for just a few days as an emergency nanny or they may be booked for a few months depending on the childcare requirements of the family.
Temporary nannies in London can be live-in or daily (live-out) and can also travel with the family. Temporary nannies also work as proxy parents should the parents need to travel away for a weekend or even a week.
Part Time Nannies, Nanny Sharing, Maternity Nurses & Night Nannies
PART TIME NANNY
Part time nannies in London work between one to four days each week and are a good option for parents who may themselves work part-time or perhaps just need a few days of child care provision per week.
Part-time nannies can be hired on a permanent or temporary basis and are normally always booked to live-out like daily nannies.

In addition, if you are considering a flexible nanny sharing arrangement we can advise you with all the information needed to make a decision about whether a nanny sharing arrangement is right for you. It is not always as straightforward or easy to find a sharing partner, there are Pros and Cons, but if you would like to share a nanny in London we'll certainly do our best to help organise a nanny sharing arrangement with you.
A nanny share is when two families jointly hire the same nanny to care for their little ones. This arrangement can offer a more inexpensive way to have a childcare professional taking care of your little ones. This arrangement is usually more practical if each family live near to each other and may be friends who also share similar views concerning the childcare of their children. A lot of nannies are able to work between two families, however nearly all nannies who can provide a nanny share arrangement for parents will charge a little more when working within a nanny share. However, nanny shares have increased in popularity with parents, as a nanny share can be a sensible childcare option for many families seeking to access the service of a professional nanny in London.
The arrangement for a nanny share can be established in the house of one of the parents, or the nanny can move between both parents houses; or two part-time parents may devise and agree a nanny schedule to take turns to use the nanny on different days.
Parents who decide to hire a nanny in London within a shared arrangement can reduce the cost of retaining a nanny's services, but it is important for both families to discuss with each other nanny hire issues such as tax, holidays and the duties each family need the nanny to perform, and any likely eventualities so as to make a smooth and trouble-free working arrangement.
MATERNITY NURSES & NIGHT NANNIES
Maternity nurses are able to support and advise parents with any issues concerning common post-natal worries such as breast feeding, reflux, feeding, or sleeping issues, as well as being trained to spot any abnormalities. This is hugely reassuring for parents who can ask all the questions that seem to always pop up, and have a professional on hand to answer and advise.
They can instruct new parents around every aspect of baby care and are capable to be left alone with new babies, enabling parents to go out to dinner in the evening or run day time errands. They will also look after the cleanliness of the nursery, bottles, and any breastfeeding equipment. They will ensure the mother has regular snacks and adequate liquids, as well as undertaking the babies nappies, bathing, and laundry. They do not look after older children or do general housework, although they will involve all members of the family with the care of the baby.
Sometimes maternity nurses are booked early to purchase the baby equipment and set up the nursery for the new arrival. They are trained to be there when they're needed and to be a discreet presence when they're not. The days of the bossy matron are well and truly gone, and maternity nurses these days work to empower and encourage confidence in the new parents, supporting them with the routine of their choice for their new little ones.
A maternity nurse will work 24 hours, with a few hours break, usually for five or six days a week, and are usually booked for between two weeks or up to three months duration, allowing parents to get a good nights sleep. They are often fully booked for three to six months ahead so it's important to book early. Most parents feel that booking a maternity nurse in London is a wonderful and reassuring investment for their little ones!
A night nanny or a maternity nanny is an alternative to a maternity nurse. A night nanny in London works nights only and in so doing they allow the parents to catch up on sleep. Night nannies are regular nannies with newborn experience and are not trained to the same level of specialism as in the way that maternity nurses do. They're not typically required to set a routine, but instead just to sleep in the little ones room and feed/settle the baby during the night.
Night nannies are therefore less expensive than a maternity nurse and can be a good childcare option for parents who already have children and do not need help with routine planning but would just like a good nights sleep!
