More Than A Nanny Services During COVID-19

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty and challenges for everyone, in particular, families with young children.  Schools have closed and many are working from home, leaving families to figure out their child care situations and how to care for their children safely at home and still work.  There are no easy answers and a case-by-case approach may be necessary.  

According to our elected officials, child care is an essential service.  In particular, full time nannies work in the home and become an extension of your own family.  Many of our families are continuing to employ their nannies and adhering to strict safety precautions.  In cases where the nanny isn't needed or takes public transportation to and from work, families may prefer the nanny to stay at home during this time and offer paid leave, reduced pay or furlough their nanny in worse case scenarios. Please keep in mind, furloughed nannies are entitled to apply for unemployment insurance during their time without pay.
