How We Determine Our Grades

Being a nanny is hard work and unfortunately most caregivers don’t come with a magical stick like Nanny McPhee or a bottomless carpetbag like the idyllic Mary Poppins. When Annie Braddock moves into an upscale Manhattan apartment to assume responsibility for a pampered boy, she discovers she has bigger problems than just bedtime in The Nanny Diaries. It is hard to know who is taking care of whom when an unskilled but financially strapped socialite becomes a nanny for a germ-phobic eight-year-old in Uptown Girls. Seven school-aged girls organize a childcare service for desperate parents who need a few hours away from their kids in The Babysitters Club.

Nanny McPhee is based on the children’s books penned by Christianna Brand.
