Nannies are best known for their responsibility for caring for children in private households. However, this is far more than babysitting. Nannies are responsible for everything from meal planning and shopping to laundry and clothing care, to organization of play activities and free time. They also provide intellectual stimulation and academic enrichment, as well as transportation to daily activities. In addition to these kind of routine, logistical expectations, nannies are often expected to model positive, refined social behaviors and encourage their charges’ sensitivity to interpersonal and intercultural communication. They should also be able to handle emergencies, such as calling an ambulance, and even providing CPR and other first aid as needed until professional help arrives.

In order to take care of their children, nannies need to be confident and proficient in the use in household appliances, including washing machines, dryers, ovens, vacuums, microwaves, ovens, and more. They also need to be able to use basic medical equipment, like thermometers, measuring spoons, and other material necessary to administer first aid to children. They also need to be able to coordinate activities with their clients or employers. As a result, they may be asked to use calendar or scheduling software (e.g., google calendar), web or word processing software (e.g., Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft word, etc.), and others required by their clients. They may be asked to get a smart phone or tablet as well to facilitate instant communication.

In addition to patience and a passion for working with children, nannies also need to have a strong foundation in the English language, or other languages their clients speak or want their children to learn. A foundational understanding of developmental psychology and education, as well as medicine, is also recommended. Nannies also need to be able to make quick, informed decisions and be able to monitor, often several children or situations simultaneously, and report the day’s events back to their clients at the end of the day or week.

Most nannies hold a high school diploma or some college, but most do not have a higher education degree. However, they generally have significant real world experience, either from being parents themselves or from caring for family members or friends.

Below are some employment trends for Nannies:

  • Median wage: $11.65 hourly, $24,230 annually
  • Employment: 1,160,000 employees
  • Projected growth (2018-2028): slower than average (2% to 3%)
  • Projected job openings (2018-2028): 177,900
