Job Description of Nanny

A person who cares for children and tends to their needs is referred to as a nanny. In most cases, the children’s own homes serve as the location for the provision of this type of care. Nannies were typically household servants who worked in large households and answered the head of the household. Throughout history, nannies reported directly to the head of the household. In today’s world, modern nannies, much like other types of domestic workers, have the option of living either inside or outside the home, depending on their circumstances and employers’ circumstances.
A Nanny watches over one or more children in the parent’s home. If the Nanny assists the children with their homework, she or he may interact directly with the teachers of the children.
