As a Premium Nanny, you are expected to cook for the whole family, but also to think proactively about the household chores. For example, if you see that the diapers are gone, go get them. If the children are dirty after a day of playing outside; give them a nice bath and throw the clothes in the wash. As a Premium Nanny you really go the extra mile.
