you can expect a nanny to do ANYthing that is child related.... there washing / ironing / change their beds / bedrooms / playroom tidy etc...

yes making children nutritiouse food is a perfectly normal and reasonable thing to expect a nanny to do!

just bear in mind that a 3 day week nanny would not expect to do a whole weeks worth of washing and ironing... maybe change the beds one day and stick in a load of washing another day!

yes playing with children / art / craft / swimming / toddler groups / music classes / tumble tots / park / playground / cooking and baking with childen are some of the many things nannies do with children!

expect to pay around £10 gross per hour for an experianced / qulaified nanny

You could use an agency to help yuo find one.... but i know more nannies who have got jobs through and

IMO agencies charge parents and absolute fortune for not a lot really!

If you have childcare vouchers from your work then you can use these to pay a nanny who is registered under the child care approval scheme (means they have a qualification / 1st aid and crb check.... it cost £99 (which a nanny would exepct a parent to pay) but saves you (the employer)lots in the long run)

i assume you realise you need to become an employer and pay nanyns tax and NI + employers NI contributions.... but websites such as nannytax etc can sort that all out very easily for you!

Good Luck
