What Is the Difference Between a Nanny and a Housekeeper in London?

Info

Many parents are unsure where the duties of a nanny end and those of a housekeeper begin when it comes to hiring home help. Misconceptions about the function of a nanny might lead to unrealistic or dangerous expectations. Gaining a better grasp of what is reasonable and what is not will help to guarantee that children cared for by nannies receive the best care possible and that their safety is never jeopardized.

A Nanny's Job Description

With more and more mothers working full-time, young children require the services of a nanny for part or all of the day.

A nanny is a useful component of the family who can work either live-in or live-out. A nanny will typically have complete responsibility for the care of the children and will be given the full duty to carry out a variety of chores while the parents are at work. These include cooking meals for the children, washing, and clothing them, running them to and from school, nursing them if they are ill, and sometimes assisting with schoolwork.

Cleaning responsibilities would typically be confined to the children's cooking utensils and tableware, as well as the tidying of their bedrooms. A nanny is not generally expected to clean the entire house or to prepare meals for the rest of the family.

Nannies are committed, loyal, experienced, and like working with children. They will have outstanding references and will be honest and trustworthy.

Working as a Housekeeper in London

A housekeeper in London does additional duties than a cleaner but is not responsible for children. They will, like a nanny, either live in or out of the family's home, depending on the circumstances.

A housekeeper is an important member of the household. They are in charge of a variety of tasks such as cleaning, laundry, cooking, and shopping, and they are frequently tasked with administrative tasks such as financial record-keeping.

Cleaning will be a key obligation for any housekeeper, but they will also be responsible for ensuring that food is ready for meals, phone messages are passed on, and errands are completed. In a large family, the housekeeper may be in charge of cleaning workers who do the more in-depth tasks.

A housekeeper will most likely interact with any children in the family, but they will not be required to care for them; this is the responsibility of the nanny.

Professional certifications or a wealth of experience are required for housekeepers. Some will have specialized abilities, such as professional cooking.

Choose the one who is right for you.

Choosing the proper individual to be in charge of your children's care or the administration of your house requires serious consideration.
