Are you planning a family vacation but thinking you might need a little extra support? Ask your nanny if they are able to join you on this adventure – whether it’s a short trip or a longer one, they may be able to assist you when you need it most. You want to make sure your trip is a good one though, so don’t rush into anything and be sure to review the details and itinerary with your nanny before firmly committing to your plans.
Here are a few things you might want to discuss before setting off:
At the same time, even though this is a fun travel opportunity for you, the kids and the nanny, you and the nanny must recognize that it is still work for the nanny – not just a vacation.
Don’t forget: if you find planning a family getaway stressful, it’s even more so for your nanny. If you’re enjoying yourself on the beach, your nanny is still working hard — and now her workplace just happens to be on the beach.
In all the chaos, be considerate of your nanny’s work and compensate accordingly. We hope that you enjoy your next family vacation with your nanny! May your adventure be filled with joy, happiness and laughter.
