Re: Do you offer your nanny paid days off?

Hmm. I feel like a scrooge not paying any vacation time, even though it is what we agreed when she was hired. We hired her with a guarantee of at least 25 hours/week regardless of our work own hours that week. But our nanny is going out of the country for 2-3 weeks around Christmas, so I feel like we should give her a bonus of 50 hours (which would be like 2 weeks at 25). Does that sound fair? Or like too much? It's $600 which looks pretty painful now that I type it out. Eeeks. She deserves it, but that's just a lot of money for us.

Our kids go to daycare. We pay a set amount each week. She takes holidays asmpaid if they fall during thenweek. She takes 2 weeks paid vacation each year. She rarely takes more than one day off at a time. We pay if they are there or not. We love our daycare and the boys love going.

Sincewe pay no matter what the boys usually go even when. We have a day off work unless we are taking a vacation or a family day.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.

Most families in our area give paid holidays and sick leave standard to their nannies. When I was working FT, a family member watched DS and we paid her the same thing monthly, regardless of how much she worked. We also have her extra around Christmas.

My mom is my daycare, so I don't have to pay her.

But, if I had a nanny, I would just pay a set monthly salary. We all need to be able to depend on our income. DH and I are both paid bi-weekly, so I would pay said nanny bi-weekly too. The daycare centers around here make you pay whether you are there or not, and it is just a weekly fee. The one SIL works at was even open on Black Friday for families to drop the kids at 6 am and go shopping.
