Key Components of a Nanny’s Annual Review


Posted on by Erin | in Nannies

For nannies and their employers, an annual review can be a nerve-wracking experience. While private, in-home childcare providers who have been with their employers for an extended period of time may be less nervous when the time for the review rolls around, it’s almost impossible for either party to feel completely comfortable with the process. Parents that are approaching their first-ever annual review with their very first nanny may find that they’re even more anxious than their employee due to inexperience with the process and a less-than-clear understanding of what an annual nanny review should entail. In the interest of making your first (or fifteenth) nanny review as simple and painless as possible, here are the key components that you should focus on.

At the end of your nanny’s annual review, it’s a good idea to begin the process of negotiating the terms of your next contract and drafting it, if changes will be made. Letting your written work agreement lapse is not advised, as the document is one of the most effective tools that either of you have to prevent confusion that leads to discord and dispute. Use discussion points from your review and the resultant conversation to create an agreement that is suitable to both parties, especially if there will be a change in duties or compensation.
