A part time nanny work’s in your home just the hours you need covering school or nursery pick-ups and drop-offs, homework, and dinner and this kind of flexible childcare arrangement is on the rise.
Types of part time nannies
A part time nanny is often defined as being employed for only part of the usual working day or week but even within that, the role your nanny takes on can vary. For example:
A general part time nanny
A general part time nanny:
- Works on average 25 hours per week (flexible).
- Duties include caring for children including light housekeeping, cooking and cleaning.
An after school nanny
An after school nanny
- Works on average 25 hours per week (post-school hours such as 3pm – 7/8pm)
- Duties revolve around the children’s post-school routine. For example, school pick-up, supervising homework and preparing dinner.
- Some after school nannies will also offer school drop-off hours in the mornings.
“I moved from full-time to part time nannying to enable me to continue my education. I am now completing my Masters at UCL and work part time for a family alongside my studies. It gives me the best of both worlds as I still get to do the job I love!
It also works for my employers who require part time hours to support the mum through her pregnancy. This involves taking my charge for days out, attending classes and prepping meals! This gives the mum more time to prepare for the baby’s arrival and means once the baby is born, she can spend more quality time with him.”
