As a nanny, it is important to “sweat the small stuff.” By this we mean, be detail oriented. Pick up at the end of the day and leave the home looking nice and more organized than when you arrived. Organize the children’s backpacks, meals and menus. Create inventory lists and anticipate the family’s needs whenever possible. As a nanny, your job is not only to provide the best care for the children, but to also “sweat the small stuff” so the parents don’t always have to!Read More
Communication is key in every successful nanny/family relationship. When you begin a new job, be sure to establish a preferred mode of communication with the parents. Please keep in mind that some families do not have the ability to speak face-to-face at the end of each day. In this case, text or email could work well. Schedule in and conduct a 6 month and annual review. Keeping the lines of communication open will set both the family and nanny up for success in creating a lasting and positive relationship!Read More
Please be sure to come back from the long holiday weekend refreshed and ready to pitch in wherever needed. Be aware that the children’s schedules and diets over the last few days may have been indulgent for the special holiday. Jump in and help the parents with unpacking, reorganizing and restocking of supplies around the home. Remain patient, positive and kind while assisting with getting everyone back on the regularly scheduled program!Read More
Nanny Tip of the Week! Attention to detail and professionalism are paramount when applying for nanny positions. If your agency requires you to follow specific steps in registering, or interviewing with them, it is best to take great care in following these steps. Missteps communicate lack of care and diligence, both of which are essential in being a successful asset to any family.Read More
Nanny Tip of the Week! Be considerate of your nanny’s time on the clock. If she is supposed to leave at 8 pm, honor that by releasing her at 8 pm or make a request for her to stay longer if you will be late. The majority of the time, the nanny is happy to be flexible. Also, if you know you are always going to be 15 minutes late with traffic, it’s better to overestimate the nanny’s “out” time. A nanny will never be upset for being asked to leave a few minutes early. Mutual respect goes a long way!Read More
Nanny Tip of the Week! If you are a professional nanny, please conduct yourself in a manner that communicates this. Stay up-to-date on First Aid/CPR/AED and other certifications that pertain to your area of expertise. Be an active member of the industry by attending conferences and workshops. Families love to see candidates who are active, engaged and have a passion for their work!Read More
Nanny Tip of the Week! When you begin a new job with a new family, remember that you are also entering into a new family culture. Remain open and ready to learn all about their unique characteristics. Work to seamlessly transition into their culture, while simultaneously adding value with your knowledge and know how!Read More
After a long holiday weekend, return to work refreshed and ready to pitch in. Understand that the children’s schedules may be off and that extra responsibilities may be requested. Try to anticipate your family’s needs and offer up help with a “can do” attitude!Read More
Set aside some time each week to reflect on why you chose your professional path. Does your heart move you to help others? Do you have a passion for being a positive influence in the lives of children? Do you feel most at home in the presence of children? Do you wish to educate the young learners of the world? To be successful in this unique profession, your passion must burn bright and strong. Reflecting on your “why” regularly will not only help you see the bigger picture when tough days arise, but also will help you celebrate small victories in the day to day!Read More
