Families generally anticipate that their children will be sick and that the nanny will have to work more hours when the children are sick… but often it does not occur to them that their nanny could also get sick too and that they need to have a backup plan these days!

Families should give their nanny four or five sick days per year and because nannies can’t predict when they will be sick, it’s best to have backup child care for these days.
