A nanny helps you to look after your child in your home. They can be convenient and flexible for your family and will allow you more say in your child’s routine. They are especially useful if you have more than one child. They can live in or come to your home for set days and hours. Many nannies have nursery nurse training or childcare qualifications, but they do not have to. Nannies can register on Ofsted’s Voluntary Childcare Register but do not have to. If a nanny is registered, parents can use Childcare Vouchers to help pay them. The GOV.UK website has information about employing a nanny. Search our services section for nannies.
