Many nannies cite poor communication as the reason for leaving a post, so it is beneficial to set aside time at the beginning and the end of each day to check in with your nanny, to discuss the children and to learn how the day was.
Based on feedback from parents and our contacts in the nanny industry we have developed a useful Nanny Diary for you to use to enable your nanny to easily keep track of the events of the day, and to make notes on meals, social outings, sleep times, activities and milestones.
You may also like to ask your Nanny to take photos during the day and send them to you.
