||Nannies provide childcare in your own home and are a popular choice for
many families. They can look after children of any age and should provide
plenty of fun and learning opportunities in a safe environment. Nannies can
often work flexible hours and may be a suitable option if you work at times
when other forms of childcare might not be available.
Making sure your child is safe, well-cared for and happy is one of the most
vital concerns for any parent. Employing a nanny is an important
responsibility. Nannies are not registered childcare and there are no legal
requirements on a person applying to work as a nanny. It is up to you, as
parent and employer, to make sure that you are employing a nanny who will
look after your children well.
