Daily Nannies

A daily nanny (also referred to as a live-out nanny) is a person - usually a female, who comes to the family’s house during the day and performs her childcare duties, but goes back to her own accommodation in the evenings. Daily nanny provided by Royal Nannies will have a minimum of 5 years childcare experience, many of them also hold suitable childcare qualifications. Our daily nannies are experienced to care for children of any age, including newborns. They can be required to have sole charge of the children, where both parents are working away from home, or have shared charge, where they are required to work alongside a parent or another nanny. Daily nanny may also be asked to baby-sit in the evening (outside her standard working hours) providing her with sufficient notice. Her babysitting services are usually paid extra and must be discussed and agreed before employment commencement.
