You may choose to give your nanny cash or a prepaid card to cover pre-agreed expenses during a shift. For example, if you want them to take your child to the cinema, or if you need them to take your child in a taxi.

Always follow these basic principles:

  • Be 100% clear in advance what you expect them to spend the money on, and what the maximum budget is

  • At the end of the shift, ask for the change back (or the card provided), along with any receipts

  • Never give out your personal credit or debit card. Provide a pre-paid debit card, or cash instead.

Acceptable Payment Methods:

Unacceptable Payment Methods
