These are instances of nannies portrayed in film, but do they really count as 'famous'?
- Billie Whitelaw's Mrs. Baylock in The Omen.
- Rebecca DeMornay's Peyton Flanders in The Hand That Rocks The Cradle.

Removal of info
I removed this info that had been placed in the See Also section.
Nannies do not always make low salaries. Au pairs are live-in nannies who usually work a lot of hours (45-55) a week and have room, board and a small stipend. Professional nannies (especially when working through nanny agencies) typically earn $18 - $25 an hour and are paid time and a half for any overtime. They recieve paid vacation, sick days and holidays and are usually rewarded with an end of year cash bonus. They often time are paid to vacation in exotic locales with their families and recieve perks throughout the years like ipods, laptops, educational donations, starbucks gift cards, etc. Some nannies for the very rich or affluent clients earn an annual salary of up to $60,000. 18.104.22.168 02:53, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
Without headings, this page is far too jumbled and visually overwhelming for readers. First attempt at this content organization was reverted, but this is a minor change that makes a big difference. Content was not changed. Marinolm 14:42, 24 April 2007 (UTC)L
- I reverted your first attempt because of the additional content added then. I think you're right about the headers making the article better. I should have been more selective in my previous edit. Sorry, and thanks for working to improve the article. -- Siobhan Hansa 17:14, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Shouldnt' Maria von Trapp be on here?
I could have sworn she was hired as a nanny...though I guess she could have been as a governness, from the article, since it says "hired to teach...". But, as kids we always thought of her as a nanny in "The Sound of Music." (Which, I'll admit, Hollywood altered for dramatic effect, but still...)
Then again, what child is going to understand the difference? :-) I guess our parents figured it was just easiest to call any woman in charge of only one family's children a nanny. (And, maybe she is named as a nanny int he movie. Which gets confusing then :-)22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:38, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Childminder should have its own article.
I can't speak for the rest of the world, but in the UK childminding as a profession is legally vastly and quite crucially different from Nannying.
A Nanny take care of a child (or children) in their own home, and has all tax and NI contribution paid by their employer (i.e the parents). A Childminder is a self employed service provider who looks after a limited number of children in the childminders own home, and is registered with and inspected by Ofsted.
By law, childminders must be inspected and registered with Ofsted,but nannies don't have to be. Anyone can advertise and hire themselves out as a nanny, but a childminder can be prosecuted for working unregistered. There are no legal requirements covering how many children a nanny can care for, or what training they are required to have, but there are for childminders.
Updated the Childminder Information for the UK
I have added the relevant information for childminders in the United Kingdom (I admit, mostly England as that is where I live and am registered!)
I really suggest that it deserves its own article as they are not the same job, and each have their own merits.
I have also made a few changes to the layout and content of the section on nanny's, mostly for better flow and ease of reading, as some of the language felt awkward. Surely there is more information than this available?
I am in the process of adding full citations where possible.
The Times article about Mannies was not accessible without a subscription and I could not find it by doing a search. So, I left the citation in place and added a citation for a second article from the same source about the same topic and provided a full citation for this one. The full article still cannot be accessed without a subscription.
Two references were for NCMA, which is now called PACEY. The first reference went to a page to which only members had access. The second reference went to another location with the same association. So, I made a general reference to the association and put it in the location of the second citation.Datdyat (talk) 17:02, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
The first reference from Ofsted regarding the definition of a childminder was for a page that no longer exists. So, I found a page about their regulations for childcare and added that citation in at the end of the sentence (removing the other citation).Datdyat (talk) 18:18, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
