Care.com has highlighted the difference between a nanny and a babysitter, please review the article located on their site to learn the difference.
Generally, babysitters care for children of any age who are in need of supervision for a few short hours. Most sitters will work either for a specific occasion or on a regular schedule (after-school babysitters, date night babysitters and weekend babysitters are common). Their main tasks are watching the kids, playing with them and maybe putting them to bed. Many babysitters are trained in basic skills such as CPR and first aid. They usually work for hourly rates, but may be paid extra if they agree to handle additional services such as cooking, tutoring and light housekeeping. It's important to discuss expectations for the job during the interview process.
A nanny is someone who is fully invested in a child's development and well-being. Generally, a nanny will care for children full-time while both parents work. It's a nanny's responsibility to create daily schedules and engage in activities to ensure healthy mental, physical and emotional growth in the children they care for. Most nannies will be tasked with preparing meals, helping with household work (dishes, laundry, etc.), driving the children to and from activities and assisting with homework.
Part-time nanny, live-in nanny, mother's helper. There are endless caregiver names posted all over care giving websites (like Care.com!). It can be confusing for both families looking to hire a sitter and caregivers looking for jobs. Here's a look at how we would define the roles.
