Nannying can be great fun and rewarding!

There are almost no pros for the nanny to being ofstead registered - if a family requires it, make sure they pay for it.
Ofstead vouchers allow parent to take a portion of their income and divert it into vouchers before the tax comes out and then it is passed onto you. Doesn't affect any of your wages it just comes separately than the rest of your pay.

You are correct, nannies are not self employed. I think commonly the family joins nannytax who deal with it all. Your contract should cover that the family is responsible for this. Make sure you are aware what a certain amount gross works out to in net pay so you understand what you are actually going to have in hand. Ideally you should be receiving wage slips but you don't need to do anything extra (family are employers, they must pay the tax if they are caught not paying tax its on them not you).

In some ways all the paperwork you mention will be a boon to you with nannying, and a bonus to parents considering hiring you (most of us agree parents love to know what their children are doing, so planning and learning journeys/ updates will be appreciated). Its important to have an emergency plan, and a permission form for medicine and the doctor. Suncream and sudo cream not so much Smiley

Hope this helps

Hi Everyone,

I have recently decided to go into Nannying. Iv always wanted to do it but never been in a position to but now I am driving etc I really want to take this step.  I have worked in nurseries for 12 years and reached the point where I just felt it wasn't me anymore and I missed actually spending time with the children.

I'm hoping to start this new post to ask all my questions and hope someone can answer them, so here goes!.......
 Huh Huh Huh
* What's the differences, and pros and cons to being ofsted registered or not?
* If I am ofsted registered and the parents use childcare vouchers, how does that effect me or my wages?
* I read that being a nanny is not allowed to be classed as self employed and the family/employers have to pay my tax and NA, how does this happen and how do I know (to cover myself) that it is being paid?
* What kind of paperwork do I need to have, being used to nurseries, I'm used to policies and procedures, medicine/accident/incident forms, learning journeys, planning, trackers, consent for calpol/sudocrem/suncream and probably more things that I cant think of right now!  How much of this do I need to have being a nanny?
* I have always loved Tapestry and wondered if it was worth looking into getting?

I cant think of anymore questions at the moment but if anyone can help me with any of these or any additional information to help me get started I would be so grateful.  Smiley
Thanks in advance

I wear jeans (black ones normally) and tops with a sweatshirt. I have a couple of dresses that I wear with stockings or leggings - comfy and flexible. I've just updated my wardrobe with some nicer looking things and bought some sweater dresses. Could do tunics and leggins/jeans?

It's up to you if you think it is reasonable. Will it cover your living and travelling to work expenses? Will you be happy with the amount?
Get a pay review put into your contract after 6 months if you accept that amount.
Are there other perks that balance the pay out? Extra holidays, gym, health benefits etc.

Hey guys,

So I have made it to second stage of interview (meeting the Children and father)

So, the role is 8-6:30 M-F and they are paying 1900 gross per month.

To me this works out 10 gross hourly rate, where as before I have always been on 10 net.

Is this still reasonable?

Advice please! So I can discuss tomorrow with the family if needed!

Thanks for your replies.

I have recently started a job in Hereford. In the process of selling my house and buying here.
I havent been able to find a nanny community here, I dont think there is one!
I am nervous about what will happen in 3years when this job ends, but cant prepare for everything I suppose.

I went to career advisor and their help was next to nothing. I want a complete change from nannying. I went recently to view a loft in a house to rent and the owner is a GP who is in her fifties and started her medical school at 41. Prior to that she was a professional violin player for over 20 years. That is what I call opportunities and courage.
