The Nanny Manager publication presents a defined and proven method for Nannies and their Employers to work together as a team in providing Child Care in a Private Home. Starkey International began serving the Nanny Profession four decades ago in Education and Placement. From this pioneering experience, Mrs. Starkey shares her Interactive Management Tools, and Practical Approach for Communicating Priorities, and Setting Daily Schedules and Standards for Nannies.
This book is for all parents and Nannies interested in hiring and working as a nanny no matter their age. The life of the children and the family is not a small affair. It requires an understanding of the rules and protocols that make being a nanny and managing them important. If everyone knows what is expected of them then the child can be happily engaged and safe. A child is a 24/7/365 vulnerable and precious being, needing love and care by the right person. It is not a 9-5 job. Please be informed on what kind of person can care for a child and what is expected of that person, but also of the parents. This book is a functional interactive system of caring and communication between the Parent and Nanny that cares for your child. Don’t manage your Nanny blindly, understand what you are asking them to do. What daily routine do believe is best for your child. You have the right to ask whatever you want but the Nanny has to be able to say ” You are asking me to do this with your child, and if I do this, this is what will happen. Is this your intention?” The same for the parents, they have to be able to ask the Nanny what is their intention, what beliefs do they have, what child care tools do they enjoy using, what does your child love to do. Specifically how do they spend the day with your child, doing what, where, while using what tools, music, videos, TV, and more. Do they take your child outside and where. I want to see a detailed specific plan to begin with no matter the experience base of the Nanny so you learn how they think. This exercise also teaches the Nanny how you think and how you what your child cared for.
The Nanny Manager brings examples of daily duties, service expectations for your child, suggestions and hiring; and ultimately good rules for managing your child’s daily experience. It also has forms for putting together a daily plan for your Nanny.
