Guide to childcare roles in the UK

It is traditional in the UK for children to be looked after by one or both of their parents, but the increasing need for both parents to work means that child care is delegated to nannies, au pairs, childminders or creches on a full-time or part-time basis.

If you are looking to employ someone to look after your children then our childcare guide hopes to provide basic information about different child carer roles.

If you need help regarding writing contracts of employment, or calculating childcare Tax for payrolls please contact Taxing Nannies.
