Families, it’s National Nanny Recognition Week! 

Your nanny is an invaluable member of your family team who works from the heart. They show up for you day in and day out, take part in raising your children, and support you in your parenting goals. During National Nanny Recognition Week, we encourage parents and kids to find ways to make your nanny feel special!

Are you looking for some ideas about how to express gratitude for your nanny during this year’s celebration? We’ve got you covered! 

Here are some of the ways you can honor the love and devotion your nanny brings to their work:

  1. Surprise them with a day off and a giftcard to their favorite restaurant!
  2. Present them with a handmade piece of art from your children.
  3. Make a card with your kiddos to present to them with a bouquet of flowers!
