The most important part of a nanny/family relationship is the communication. Nannies need to convey to the family what is happening with their children during the day: what foods are being eaten, what activities are being done, and also special info like medicines and carpooling. All of the details of a busy life! In addition, families like to see the intentional planning that an exceptional nanny does- the "why" behind the what.
We designed Our Nanny Diary to be part daily journal, part family planner. It has space designed to record activities, food, diapers, notes, to do lists and more. It also has special touches that help with communication on schedule, meals and other family duties. Our Nanny Diary has pages included to help with emergency contacts, packing for vacations, doctor and dentist visits, and lesson planning. Loads of resources are packed in each diary that help families and nannies stay on the same page.
With a collective 50 years in the business, Sue and Kellie have worked hard to ensure Our Nanny Diary is effective for all nannies. Our experience in a wide variety of homes gives us a unique perspective to help with the complicated business of nanny/family communication. Whether the nanny is focused solely on the care of children, or juggling aspects of household management, this planner can help share what is going on, what is coming up and every detail in-between in a busy home.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge of course is printing costs. Many of the pages are designed but in order to print them at a cost that is effective for sale, we must secure enough orders to make an initial press run. We know we can do this!
We also hope to offer customizable diaries in the future. In the meantime, we have many downloadable pages that you can use to add to your diary. These downloads address shopping, packing and curriculum among other topics.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
