Hi, I am heading back to work and looking for a nanny to mind children in my home full-time. My two children are at school, so hours would be 1.30 to 6pm during school term. However, in holidays or sickness I will need full day cover. How do people work this out? Do I just employ someone full-time all year and add maybe light housework for the mornings they are at school? All advice appreciated. Thank you.

I´d say advertise what your needs are and see what terms the nannies who apply are...some qualified nannies will refuse any sort cleaning outside general tidy up of children in their care. Other happy to clean but requires extra payment. A nanny is paid by hour regardless, it just depends on when ye both start the clock. You maybe lucky to find someone happy with just afterschool hours but delighted to get extra adhoc hours as needed.
