- Hiring a great nanny, and
- Being a great boss.
Do this, and your children will be well cared for.
The foundation of both steps is having a great nanny contract.
A great nanny contract does more than set wages and work hours. It lays the foundation for how your children will be cared for. It also shows that you respect your role as the boss, and your nanny’s role as a professional caregiver. The result is a happier nanny, and better care for your children.
Parents’ #1 Mistake
Do you know the main mistake parents make with nanny contracts?
We’ll tell you: Using a free one they found online.
Parents spend $20,000 and more per year on nanny care. Yet some amazingly skimp and spend $0 on the core legal document for their nanny care. The results can be disastrous–thousands of dollars owed in back taxes, fines and attorney fees.
Don’t make the same mistake. Nanny care is governed by many federal and state laws. Use a nanny contract written by professionals who understand those laws and who know and understand legal contracts. Don’t risk your children’s well being and safety with a free sample you found online.
So where can you find a great nanny contract? There are three solutions:
- Have your attorney write one.
- Ask if your nanny placement agency has one.
- Purchase a reasonably priced, professionally written nanny contract online.
The first solution is fine, but be prepared to spend several hundred dollars or more, as most attorneys will need to write your nanny contract from scratch.
The second solution is also fine, but some placement agencies offer contracts that weren’t written or reviewed by attorneys. In addition, many of their contracts are too short (1-3 pages) and miss important legal issues, or they’re too long (8+ pages) and not practical.
The third solution is where we come in. Our team of attorneys spent hours researching the laws and nanny care. The result is an easy-to-understand, comprehensive nanny contract that you can download immediately for the low cost of $19.95, or $29.95 for our deluxe package.

Eliminate the Stress of Missing a Critical Issue
Hiring a nanny involves many things—figuring out wages and benefits, setting job duties and house rules, conducting a background check, and more.
As a busy parent, how are you supposed to know you didn’t miss something important?
Rest easy. Our nanny contract acts like a checklist, covering the important issues of nanny care. Here’s a snapshot:
Our nanny contract has 20 paragraphs, each of which has a bold heading covering a key issue. That means you can flip through the nanny contract in seconds and see all the key issues, knowing you haven’t missed something critical.
Our nanny contract specifically covers: 1) start date, 2) trial period of employment, 3) work schedule, 4) hourly wages or salary, 5) overtime pay, 6) pay period/frequency, 7) holidays, 8) vacation, 9) sick leave, 10) job duties, 11) house rules, 12) extra benefits, 13) taxes, 14) unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation, 15) transportation, 16) emergencies, 17) background check, 18) work eligibility, 19) confidentiality, and 20) termination of employment.
Protect Your Assets and Reputation
The IRS loves catching a tax cheat—not only can it collect back taxes, it can also assess fines and dig into old tax returns looking for mistakes.
Our nanny contract specifically addresses that issue by treating your nanny as an employee and not as an independent contractor, which the IRS prohibits. It also helps with wages and overtime, so that you won’t get in trouble with your state and local government.
Our nanny contract also requires the nanny to keep information about your family confidential:
Consequently, your nanny will be legally required to keep financial and other information about your family secret. Don’t delay, protect your family now by downloading your basic or deluxe package.
