We are thrilled to announce that Educated Nannies has been nominated as one of the most helpful Childcare Agencies & Resources in Los Angeles! We are the only agency in Los Angeles that requires a 4-year college degree, 5 years of child-care experience, and provides educational materials and nanny “Tips of the Week” on our website. We also give back to the community by donating a portion of each referral fee to HOLA (Heart of Los Angeles). We truly enjoy every step of the process from interviewing nannies to home visits to making that special connection.

Nanny Tip of the Week!

Nanny Tip of the Week!

Nanny Tip of the Week! Be courteous and make smart decisions. While working with a family, please make sure you return phone calls, texts and emails as soon as you safely can. If your employer texts you and needs an immediate response, do not text and drive. If necessary, pull your vehicle over to a stop and respond. It’s important to be courteous to others, but your life and safety is the top priority.

Nanny Tip of the Week! Be honest with your agency and the families you interview with. There is no need to apologize if you only want to work 40 hours a week or if cooking is not on your list of skills. Please let us know all of your strengths, weaknesses, and wants. It makes for a much happier relationship between you and your employer. Our families are investing as much in you, as we hope you are in them. It’s best to be placed with a family that appreciates all you have to offer, and build a harmonious relationship 🙂

Nanny Tip of the Week! Act aware. Some families have surveillance cameras installed in their homes to monitor the nanny while she is working. The International Nanny Association strongly recommends that if an employer has installed or plans to install hidden cameras, that the employer discusses the subject with the nanny, preferably before employment commences. However, this is not always the case, and a nanny may get caught on camera doing something less than desirable. Our advice is to always act like you are being watched. Children aren’t the only ones who are supposed to be on their best behavior! Do your job and do it well whether you are on video or not.

Nanny Tip of the Week! Calling out sick. Be professional and honest! It happens to the best of us. You wake up with that dreaded feeling of a sore throat, chest cold, or stomach flu and panic sets in. If you just can’t make it to work, try to give your boss plenty of notice. It’s always good to inquire about a sick policy. Maybe your boss would like you to try to come into work and prefers to send you home? Maybe your boss dislikes germs and doesn’t want you anywhere near their children? If you are carrying anything highly contagious, respectfully decline and try to provide a doctor’s notice. On the other hand, if it’s anything that over the counter medicines can help with, we know it will be a yucky day, but try your best to make it through… especially if it’s a short day
