A. Your nanny contract should include all of those job responsibilities that you expect your nanny to perform. A few examples include:
- Child care responsibilities– e.g., formula or food preparation, changing diapers, daily learning activities, dressing children, providing daily nap time, daily recreation, providing transportation, and disciplining children.
- Household responsibilities– e.g., laundry and cleaning areas used by children.
- Extra requirements for family– e.g., cleaning areas of the house not used by nanny or children and food preparation for members of the family beyond the children.
House rules may include: no smoking, no guests, no social use of family’s phone, no alcohol, and no illegal activities.
Please note that the lists provided above are not exhaustive. Deciding which rules and responsibilities to include in your contract is a subjective activity, the details of which should be discussed in much detail between your family and your nanny.
