Families often develop really close and positive relationships with their nannies, but it’s important to keep a professional distance when it comes to their personal finances. If your nanny’s a student, they may find themselves in a financial pinch down the line.
You are not expected to lend or advance payment in any form, and it’s not appropriate for your nanny to ask for these things. This complicates your relationship with them, and can cause serious problems when such arrangements are entered into.
It’s wise to avoid providing loans or advances. Help them stay focused on giving you great childcare.
