Re: what is the difference between a nanny and a baby sitter

A Nanny is more often than not a full time live in or nearby, long term, fully qualified role who basically takes over the day to day matters of looking after the kids. Traditionally Nannies are employed by high income, high wealth professional people, the famous, and royalty. The role can be quite well paid especially when taking into account that normally the employer provides the accommodation and food. Some Nannies also take over the general household management and are given a household budget with which to buy in the essentials, and to employ other staff such as cleaners and cooks.

I'm extremely good friends with somebody that used to be a professional Nanny. The list of who she's worked for reads like a top celebraties who's who, and she knows enough to give the Daily Mail headlines for the next year

A baby sitter is just that. Somebody who pops round to look after the kids for a few hours at time, for a bit of pocket money.
