It is important that you take a moment yearly to evaluate your nanny’s job performance in order to give accolades or identify areas for improvement.
The nanny report card is designed to facilitate communication between the nanny and the parent. Communication is the vane of most relationships, an effective open dialogue between the parents and the nannies will yield the greatest results in the child.
In my book “ How to Get the Best out of your Nanny” I talk about the importance on communication between a parent and a nanny. For the parents to get the best out of their nanny, they must communicate! Parents that fail to communicate end up in a soured situation that can easily leave a “dent” on the child’s behavior pattern. Children tend to feed of of our emotions, so if they feel there is tension or a negative reaction to how you treat your nanny, it will show in their behavior.
In addition the report card can be used to honor the nanny with an annual raise and or bonus based on performance and appreciation. So having a report card is a great way to allow the nanny to see how well she performs since communication is a two way act of imparting or exchanging of information I have also written a report card that a nanny can use to evaluate the parents as well. Nannies sometimes feel that there are things they can communicate that will help make the job easier and fun especially for the sake of the children.
