When a nanny is on duty her focus should be on the children. Phone calls, television, and Internet use should be kept to a minimum while at work. Nannies should speak to the parents to determine if they are comfortable with her engaging in these activities during the child’s nap or rest time.
Nannies should never talk, text, eat, or participate in other distracting activities while transporting the children.
Nannies should also be proactive in determining the family’s rules regarding social media use. Nannies should not post pictures of the children or information about the children or family without expressed consent. Nannies should use good judgment whenever sharing information about their workplace, work family or the children in their care.
