how to prepare

Once you’ve found the perfect house keeper and cleaner for your family, it is time to explain all the specific rules, like screen time guidelines, or show how everything works — like your complicated old dishwasher? You can’t be over-prepared when it comes to the care of your children.

Use this checklist below to make sure you and your home helper are on the same page before she or he gets started and over the first few days of work. She’ll thank you for all the specifics when something unexpected pops up. If it helps, print out this page and check items off as you complete them to ensure peace of mind and a successful start to this journey with your new home nanny.

CONTACT AND PERSONAL INFORMATION


Exchange contact information. This includes things like home address, phone numbers (work and cell) and email for your nanny and for all members of your family. Determine the best way to reach each other during the day or in case of an emergency. For your paperwork, you may need her license number and taxpayer ID number.

Make important numbers easy to access. Write down numbers for the pediatrician, school and a close friend, family member or neighbor, and keep them in an easy place to find in case she needs them.

Keep signed copies of your nanny contract on hand. You and your nanny should each have a copy of the signed work agreement. This should include the agreed-upon pay, days and hours for work and any extra things, such as agreed-upon housework, cooking, etc.

TRANSPORTATION


Explain all the specifics of your vehicle. A nice thing to do is to program your GPS with the addresses of school, the doctor's office, dance class, soccer practice and the kids' best friends' homes. It may seem like a pain, but it's easier than shouting directions over the phone while you’re at work.

Update your car insurance. Your car insurance plan should be updated to cover your nanny, if she’s going to be driving your car.

HOUSE RULES


Make sure the nanny has necessary access. Your nanny needs her own set of house keys, as well as entry cards or passes to the school or indoor play space that your family uses, if you want her to take the kids there.

Explain all housing operations. Make sure the nanny knows how to operate the heat/air conditioning, TV, washing machine, dishwasher and any other household appliances she may need to use. If you expect her to be answering the phone a lot or taking messages, make sure she is aware. If your house is childproofed, demonstrate how toddler safety gates operate.

Lay out kitchen rules. Explain which dishes and kitchenware are OK to use if she is going to be doing any cooking

Notify your nanny of expected visitors. Be sure your nanny is aware of any visitors you’re expecting each day. That includes pool cleaners or any other maintenance workers who may be around the house.

Detail all pet care. Does your nanny need to let any pets out to go to the bathroom, walk them or feed them? Is there any weird behavior to look out for, such as digging under or jumping fences or excessive barking? This goes especially for naptime, when you don’t want the kids being woken up by loud animals.

DAILY ROUTINE


Have a written protocol. For the first week, write down protocol until you get into a routine: School schedule, naps, classes and practices, extracurricular activities, meals, snacks and homework. Loop your nanny into the timing of things, such as when to be outside to catch the school bus, how long it may take on a busy morning to drive to school and how long it realistically takes your kid to get dressed and eat breakfast. As a general note, before you leave the house in the morning, you might want to give her a rundown of the day's events, especially if there are changes to the routine.

Explain screen time rules. Clearly state rules for phone, TV and computer time in your house.

Create a collaborative calendar. Consider making a calendar for her (and you) to refer to and encourage her to add to it as she gets more comfortable. On the calendar, schedule regular check-ins with your nanny to go over any concerns that come up.

SAFETY AND HEALTH


Discuss allergies and intolerances. Remind your nanny of any allergies or particular food issues your children may have and whether there are any items of food that are off limits, like super sugary items or your own stash of Rocky Road. For children with serious allergies, put food away that would be harmful them.

Go over bathing rituals for the kids. Explain things like which shampoo and soap to use, and remind her about safety concerns (i.e., experts advise that children 6 years or younger should not be unattended in a bathtub).

Explain the diaper and potty situation. If the nanny is changing diapers, tell her how often she should do it and what ointments to use, if any. If you are potty training, explain the routine again.

Set rules for playtime and naptime. Let her know where it's safe for the kids to play outside (if they can play unattended anywhere), and explain the rules for watching them on the swing set, trampoline or on their bikes. If the kids have set quiet time or naptime, let the nanny know so she can keep them on schedule.

SPREAD THE WORD


Let everyone know about your new nanny. Alert your child's school, your building's doorman and friends about your new nanny and give them her name. Most schools will not release your child to someone who is not on an authorized list.
