What's the difference between a nanny and a babysitter?

Nannies can be hired on a full-time or part-time basis. During the working hours when children are in their care, the nanny has full responsibility for them. This includes tasks such as preparing meals for the children, making sure they are dressed and tidying up messy play areas.

Nannies can live in or out depending on the given family’s needs and preferences. If you do opt for a live-in nanny, they should be offered a separate room or granny flat that allows for plenty of privacy when they are not on duty. Live-out nannies, meanwhile, usually agree regular set hours with parents before starting work.

Most nannies have undergone training and garnered plenty of experience working with children across a range of different ages. It is usually expected that nannies earn a first aid qualification before working with kids to ensure they can provide care in an emergency. Most nannies only work with one family, allowing the children to develop a strong bond with them. They represent a very good choice for busy families who need a significant amount of help with childcare and would like to know that their children are in the company of a qualified professional who can help with their education and developmental growth.

As babysitters are not salaried, they tend to take up work as and when it is available and work with a substantial number of families to boost their earning potential. For this reason, good babysitters are often in high demand and parents may find themselves disappointed to find their favourite babysitter is unavailable at the last minute.

Overall, hiring a babysitter is a great option if youneed some short-term childcare that is relatively affordable. Many parents hire babysitters who are local to their neighbourhood such as teenage children or adult university students. This is a great solution for young students to earn extra money whilst helping local families.

Tips for being a great babysitter

If you’re new to babysitting or have been doing it for years, it’s always good to remember what parents are looking for in a great babysitter. Here’s a shortlist of our top tips.

1. Send Updates
It’s important to put yourself in the parent’s shoes. You’re caring for their most prized possession, so you will need to provide some reassurance that everything is going well. Send an update via text to let them know how things are going and maybe even a cute picture. This is especially important if it’s your first time babysitting for a particular family.

2. Be Relatable
Help kids feel at ease, by asking them to show you their favourite game/toy. This is a good way to ease into getting to know a new child that you haven’t looked after before. Let them warm to you slowly. Perhaps they could show you around their room and tell you about their favourite books too.

3. Keep Things Tidy
Always leave the kitchen how you found it. Trust me on this one, there’s nothing like going out and coming home to a clean kitchen. Wipe down counters, clean anything in the sink and see if the dishwasher needs unpacking. If you don’t know where things go, leave them on the drying rack.

4. Go Above and Beyond
Ask the family if there is anything extra you could do to help. From experiences, for babysitting jobs, parents will more often than not say “thank you but no need” however it’s important that you give them the opportunity.
