Communication is essential to any successful relationship and communication with your nanny is no exception.
As your child grows and reaches new developmental milestones your nanny’s role will change. When a child drops nap time or needs more stimulation and interaction, a nanny will suddenly have less time on her hands. Alternatively, when a child starts school, a nanny will have more time available in the middle of the day.
As a result, it is important parents recognize that as the demands placed on a nanny change, so should the expectations around the role. Clear and regular communication between nannies and families will prevent misunderstandings and ensure that a family’s needs are being met at each stage of a child’s development.
