A live-out (daily) nanny provided by Royal Nannies will have a minimum of 3 years of childcare experience and may also hold childcare qualifications. All our daily nannies have been interviewed and have had their references checked so we feel confident in providing you with the very best childminder for your little ones.

What are the different types of Daily Chilcare?

Daily 'Live out' nanny positions can either be sole charge where both parents are working or shared charge, where the nanny works alongside a parent.

What are the standard working hours for Daily Nannies?

  • Full time nannies - 10 hours a day, (M- F, usually 8am – 6pm)
  • Part time nannies – hours to be agreed between you and your childminder.Please note we do not deal with PART TIME NANNY PLACEMENTS, unless you require 4 or 5 full days per week

Can my nanny provide babysitting services too?

If you require your childminder to baby-sit on top of their standard working hours then this must be discussed and agreed before employment commencement. Most Nannies are happy to baby-sit Monday-Thursday if they are asked in advance and paid extra (£8 - £10 an hour)

What are the duties of a Live Out Nanny?

Daily Nannies are expected to undertake all nursery duties relating to the children only. This means providing care such as bathing, dressing and preparing nutritious meals.
Your live out nanny will be expected to wash, iron and organise the children's clothes and belongings. She will ensure that toys are clean and safe, organised and tidied away at the end of the day, and the play area kept clean and tidy. A daily nanny will also ensure the children are active and social; for example she will organise play dates, attend baby classes, outings to the park, library etc.
A Nanny will use her knowledge and skills to further the children's development through play. She will provide activities such as creative arts and crafts, construction play, singing, reading and other various learning opportunities.
A Nanny is not expected to do any heavy housework, family cooking or any other chores not related to the children.

What is the market salary for a Live Out Nanny?

Salaries will depend upon age, experience, and the duties involved and will range from £400 - £500+ net per week. Please note those are only guide minimums. Each position is individually negotiated and more experienced daily nannies may command higher salaries.

What about holiday entitlement for Live Out Nannies?

Daily nannies are entitled to a minimum of 4-weeks paid holiday. National Bank holidays are given or additional payment is made. Holiday time is taken at a mutually agreed time. Some families agree holiday time using a combination of 2 weeks the Employer chooses and 2 weeks the Employee chooses.
If the family requires their childminder to come on holiday with them, then this must be discussed and agreed prior to employment commencement. All travels expenses, food and nanny’s weekly wage will also need to be covered.

What are my responibilities as nanny's employer?

The employer of a daily nanny should provide her lunch during a normal working day. If the Nanny works overtime, is taken on holiday, breakfast and/or dinner should also be provided.
