Nanny / Parent diary

Nanny / Parent diary

Many nannies cite poor communication as the reason for leaving a family, so take time at the beginning and the end of each day to discuss the children.

Here is a handy diary system which you can use as a guide to allow your nanny to record the events of the day, note appointments, meals, social outings, sleep times and medications.

It also helps with tracking the child's developmental steps. Ask your Nanny to keep a camera at the ready so they can take photos of the children throughout the day.

It's fun and you can track their progress and routine.
