Live-In Nanny A live in nanny has
sole charge of the child/ren and lives with the family either
having his/her own room within the family home or alternatively
he/she may have a self contained flat within the home or
grounds. The Nanny
would normally work for 11-12 hours each day and be required to
baby-sit for 2 or 3 evenings a week. The salary for a live in nanny
is generally less than that of a live out nanny as it is determined
by taking into account the accommodation, food and other living
cost which may be provided in lieu of some pay.
