So I've been caring for the same family (three kids) for 3 years, since the youngest was 3 months old. Those kids are my second kids and my kids consider them family as well. We exchange gifts for the kids and they normally give me about a weeks paid time off during Christmas while they're outta town, and then a little bonus. But I never expect anything. I'm grateful to have them and love the entire family more than words! I go above and beyond for the kids, and call the parents some of my closest friends.
We use a home daycare for both girls and agree with the weeks worth of pay, if cash. We bought her and her family a nice package from Omaha steaks with few bottles of wine,jack stack seasoning rubs and a generous Starbucks gc and it still wasn’t a weeks pay.
I gave a week’s pay after working for less than 4 months but then she had to leave :(
I got mine an organic facial at the salon I go to.
Depends on your nanny. Cash was always good. One family I worked for gave me cash with Star Wars or Harry Potter legos every “gift giving” occasion (Christmas, my birthday, my work anniversary). It meant a lot to me.
