Quality childcare is not babysitting and the key is to select a nanny who understands what it takes for children to grow and learn. The caregiver / nanny must be affectionate, responsive, open minded and can provide a stable and stimulating environment for your children. Someone who can plan a balanced day with interesting activities (indoors and outdoors) within a daily routine including nutritional meals and snacks.
As a parent your responsibility does not end when you select a suitable nanny. You have to consider the many other aspects of the relationship between you and the selected caregiver:
your relationship must be one of mutual respect, trust and cooperation.
an ongoing commitment to communication: hear about your child's day, voice concerns, express appreciation, etc.
live up to your signed agreement with your nanny: working hours and remuneration
