Advice on Nanny Notice

How Much Notice Should a Nanny Give?

This question was submitted by an Anonymous member in the Mommy Club group.

Just when I was settled into my routine as a mother, working woman and a wife, my nanny decided to leave us. I can't blame her — she found a family willing to give her more hours, which translates into more money. Like many normal jobs, she gave me two weeks notice but unfortunately for me, that's not a lot of time to get a new babysitter. Is it crazy to expect more time from her or is that the normal amount of time a babysitter should give for notice?

We recommend at Nannies4hire.com that nannies and families are both courteous of each others needs. If the nanny is going to leave the position, we feel they should give the family enough time to find the right match for their family and the family should give the nanny notice as well, if they will no longer be needing them. Give at least 2+ weeks notice, or even more if possible. http://www.nannies4hire.com

Parets give me no notice all the time. I charge a 4 week deposit to cover my lost until I find new clients. I think parents should offer the same to nannies. 2 or 4 week extra pay notice.

I agree on the contract thing, its a good point to have made upfront. It really is understandable that you would WANT more time, but really isn't something you can ask her to give you. She's already given you the standard 2 week notice, and notified her new employer who has undoubtedly made arrangements with that in mind. The situation sucks :\
