What is a nanny in Chile?

While visiting in Santiago, I learned that a Nanny is someone who helps to watch your children. But this could also be the name of someone who comes once a week to clean your house, as well as the woman who helps to do your ironing weekly. I was surprised that all these different people were considered a "Nanny". I learned this when I visited my son's family in Chile. I don't know if it is just this household that uses the title generally, but I found it was interesting...and confusing at times.
