Important Nanny advice for parents

The following are some essential nanny tips for parents to remember after hiring a nanny.

  • Parents should establish clear expectations for their nannies and regularly communicate with them about how things are going.
  • Periodically checking in with the nanny about their workload and any issues that need to be addressed is essential for creating an atmosphere of trust and respect.
  • It is vital to ensure that the nanny has enough time off throughout the week to rest and recharge in order to stay motivated and inspired in their work.
  • Finally, ensure you have a backup plan if your nanny cannot come in for any reason. Our team can assist you in case you need an emergency nanny as well.
