For example, our experts took more than 30 hours researching, drafting, and asking parents and nannies about our nanny contract. Drafting a nanny contract also involves attention to, and avoiding, the legal pitfalls of nanny care. Lastly, drafting a nanny contract requires attention to plain, simple English that everyone understands. For that reason, we recommend that parents purchase a good nanny contract.
