An Average Day for a Live In Nanny

How much housekeeping you expect your live in nanny to do is up to you. However, these duties should be clearly spelled out in the contract. If you pretty much just need your live in nanny to help get the kids off to school and meet them when they get home in the afternoon, you might want to specify certain housekeeping duties to complete during the day. After the kids are gone to school, your live in nanny could run errands, get groceries for the family, do the laundry, and prepare some healthy snacks for when the kids get home from school.

A sample daily schedule for live in nannies might look something like this:

  • Get the kids up and ready for school (prepare a healthy breakfast)
  • Do some light housekeeping in the morning.
  • Get groceries (most live in nannies have use of the family car for errands)
  • If the kids come home for lunch, the nanny should have a light, healthy lunch ready for them.
  • Do the laundry (clean, dry and fold)
  • Run errands as necessary (pick up dry cleaning, etc.)
  • Meet the kids when they come home from school.
  • Offer the kids a snack and have them do their homework. Help as needed.
  • Start supper cooking for when the family gets home from work.

    Your live in nanny should be available to fill in the gaps when you're not there. The above list is a typical day, but doesn't necessarily look like this for everyone.
