For parents and guardians, nannies are life-savers, providing care for children on an ongoing or short-term basis. Employed either as live-in or live-out nannies – meaning living inside or outside of clients' homes – or in child-care agencies, individuals in this field look after the well-being and physical and social development of children of varying ages, though some may specialize in a particular age group. Maternity nannies, for example, focus on the care of newborn babies.

Depending on the employer and age group of children, nannies may assist parents with child care, perform household duties, dress, feed, change, and bathe children, cook meals, take the children on outings, transport them to and from school, help children with school work, entertain and play with them, organize activities, discipline children, and in some cases teach them basic skills like reading or writing.
