Nanny Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Nanny in Chelan:
"You pay for what you get."
Don't ever ask the parents what they want to pay you. You say my rate is... (What ever it is you want to be paid). You are worth the money don't accept anything less than $40.00/day/child! Also, get reimbursed for gas. As of caring for the child, you want to fallow the parents rules. The way they choose to raise their children is how you should be doing it. Socializing is huge! I take them to play dates, the library for story time, and to the park, at least 4 times a week. I read to them all the time, also teaching them shapes, colors, and how to count. I am a rent-a-mommy, not a babysitter.

Nanny in Southfield:
"Pay and time off."
Don't work seven days a week for only $500 as a live-in nanny because it's stupid. Now I'm stuck here trying to figure out my next move.

Nanny in Denver:
"Nannies are taken advantage of."
Do your homework about FLSA and do not accept a job that doesn't pay overtime. Also don't accept a job without a written contract by the employer.

Nanny in Bryn Mawr:
"Don't low ball yourself."
Ensure to ask for all the benefits you could possibly want up front, and work down from there, including asking for the higher end on pay and negotiating downward if first offer is not accepted. Set clear boundaries and expectations on your end and the family you would be working for. The more children, the higher the rate. The more responsibilities on the list, the higher the rate.

Nanny in Littleton:
"Must love children."
Have your employer be specific of how many hours you're going to be working in a week.

Nanny in Owasso:
"Cover your bases."
Make sure you sit down and get a nanny contract made. It will help when they start trying to add things to your duty list without asking or giving you proper compensation for what you do that is extra. Also be sure they are paying the nanny taxes otherwise you won't receive a w-2 and that can hinder you from being approved for many things.

Nanny in Youngstown:
"Watch out!"
Take this job seriously because you are to make sure the children are always safe and taken care of. You have to be able to think and act like their mother would in providing care for them.
