WHAT IS
A MANNY?

A Manny is the male equivalent to a female nanny who is responsible for the care of the children. They have minimum of 2 years professional childcare or teaching experience. Although the role used to be primarily for females, the role of “manny” is becoming more and more popular in families with boys, where a male nanny is more able to meet the needs and demands of their charges.
