Do you have a rockstar nanny that supports you and your littles each day? If so, National Nanny Recognition Week (September 19th-25th) is the perfect time to celebrate them and show them your gratitude and appreciation. This is also an opportunity for your children to say thank you to their nanny for being a positive role model in their life. Remembering to say thank you is so important, and we are sharing some ideas on how you and your children can show them your gratitude!
A SPECIAL MEAL
Food is always a great way to honor someone for National Nanny Recognition Week! Prepare their favorite meal for them and have your child(ren) act as servers to make it fun and extra special. If cooking is not your thing, you can also order take-out from DoorDash, Grubhub or UberEats, and have food delivered right to their homes quickly and safely!
SURPRISE PAID TIME OFF
National Nanny Recognition Week is a wonderful opportunity to offer an extra day of paid time off to your hardworking nanny. It can offer him or her some extra time for those errands they haven’t been able to get around to or maybe they would like to just hang at home and watch Netflix all day. Either way you cannot go wrong with this fun surprise!
SPA DAY OR MANI/PEDI VOUCHER
Caring for kiddos can be physically and emotionally demanding. A gift card to a nearby spa or nail salon is a wonderful way to say thank you and may be just what you nanny needs to relax on her free time!
MAKE A MEMORY BOOK
Your nanny probably spends many long days with your little ones and each day creates special moments big and small. Put together some photos or take some new photos to put together into a memory book that you nanny can hold special to their heart!
Write a letter of appreciation to your nanny and then gift them a bonus! Maybe they’ve been saving up for something special like a class with Newborn Care Solutions or membership to the INA? This would give them just enough to finally splurge on themselves! Additionally, it shows them how grateful you are to them for being such an important part of your lives.
WORDS OF KINDNESS
Thank your nanny and tell them how wonderful they are and highlight some of their best qualities. It feels good to be loved and hear positive things about yourself! Words of kindness go a long way and can really make a person feel appreciated. Above all, words of kindness make the world a better place!

A SMALL GIFT
Who doesn’t love to receive a small gift as a token of appreciation? Maybe they love coffee, or jewelry, or could use some new gear for camping? For safe and contactless delivery another great option is an Amazon gift card that you nanny can use for whatever their heart desires!
A BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET
No matter the occasion, a bright and cheery bouquet of flowers is always a great way to put a smile on someone’s face. Send a vibrant arrangement from your local florist and be sure to add a sentimental note to let your nanny know how much you appreciate them!
THANK YOU TREASURE HUNT
This is a great activity to also get your children involved in! You can have them make sweet arts and crafts or hide small gifts that you want to surprise your nanny with. Be sure to write clues or even make a treasure hunt map to go on an appreciation hunt together.
THROW A NANNY PARTY
What better way to celebrate your amazing nanny by throwing them their own party? Try decorating the house, making a fun treat to share, and putting on some of their favorite music to celebrate how amazing they are to your family!
HAVE A FABULOUS WEEK CELEBRATING YOUR EDUCATED NANNIES FOR NATIONAL NANNY RECOGNITION WEEK!
