Nanny Appreciation Tips

  2. Ensure that your children say thank you and show their appreciation
  3. Tell friends and close relatives about their great work, so that the information gets back to your nanny.
  4. Give them a surprise day off
  5. Treat them to a homemade breakfast at the start of their shift, or a family dinner at the end of their day if they are a live in nanny
  6. A simple thank you card or gift such as a photo frame of your nanny and your children
  7. Help towards tuition fees, if they are studying whilst nannying, up-skill them by gifting a nanny training course
  8. A nice bottle of wine, some chocolates and flowers are always appreciated
  9. Take them out for dinner, or money towards going out for dinner with friends
  10. Offer a pay rise, and / or a bonus for staying with you
  11. Organise a weekly fruit box or snack box delivered to their home address
  12. Give your nanny a gift card for their favourite shop

  15. Give the chance to have an extra few days off with their family at Christmas and Easter

These are just a simple few ideas that can make your nanny feel very loved and appreciated. This creates an even stronger relationship between yourself and your nanny as they are aware that their work has not gone unnoticed. This in turn helps to keep your nanny happy, and they will work even harder knowing that you are grateful for everything they do.
