Nanny's & Granny's is often asked about our feelings on video surveillance of nannies. It is the opinion of this agency that properly used, video taping can be a useful tool in reducing the anxiety connected with home child care. It is our belief that a family needs to do whatever will make them comfortable so that they can go to work and feel secure that their children are receiving the best care possible in their absence. If video surveillance is what makes you comfortable by all please install a video camera.
Nannies are also protected by video surveillance as they will be protected from unwarranted child abuse charges.
On the other hand, trust is an important factor in the client/nanny relationship. Nanny's & Granny's suggests that since the goal of video taping is to keep your children safe and to put you at ease, you should tell your nanny that she is on video tape.
In any case and no matter what your decision as a service to our clients, Nanny's & Granny's has researched a local professional surveillance company that we use for our offices and will be happy to recommend to you. Todays surveillance options offer many options from simple cameras to web cam options where a client can log on their work computer and view the nanny and baby from their remote locations.
