A Nanny Housekeeper: A Perfect Hybrid Role for Your Household

If you're seeking childcare and household support but don't require full-time nanny services, a Nanny Housekeeper could be the ideal solution. This versatile role is well-suited for families with children attending part-time nursery or full-time school, or when a parent is at home but needs assistance with household duties and occasional childcare.

The Duties and Responsibilities of a Nanny Housekeeper

The tasks undertaken by a Nanny Housekeeper can vary significantly based on your family's specific needs. When recruiting for this role, it's crucial to have a clear understanding of the level of childcare and household duties required to find the perfect match. The primary difference is that a Nanny Housekeeper can take on household duties for the entire family, not just the children.

This position can be either live-in or daily, depending on your preferences and circumstances.

General duties typically include

  • General household upkeep and tidying

  • Laundry and ironing for the family

  • Meal planning and preparation (Children only or family)

  • Childcare duties and occasional babysitting

  • Driving for school runs, playdates, and extracurricular activities

  • Running errands such as post office and dry cleaning visits

  • Food shopping (online or in-store)

  • Managing children's appointments and schedules

Pet care if agreed upon and the Nanny Housekeeper is a pet lover

It's essential to have open communication during the hiring process to determine which household duties the Nanny Housekeeper is comfortable with. While some may be willing to prepare family meals and take on household ironing tasks, others may prefer a more child-focused approach. Honest discussions about the role's expectations will ensure a successful and long lasting match.

Many families also retain the services of a cleaner for weekly deep cleaning tasks, complementing the Nanny Housekeeper's responsibilities.
