I have been a nanny for a number of years. My enthusiasm for quality childcare and having recognised a lack of information on caregiving led me to write a book for nannies, Nanny ABCs: A Complete A-Z Handbook for Every Child Carer - based on everything I’ve learned as a nanny – in the hope that it would lift the childcare industry up by having the standards in black and white. Nanny ABCs: The Sitter’s Handbook spells everything out, making it easier for nannies and parents to better understand the caregiver’s role as a family employee and for them to immediately implement quality care. - Danny J Nanny
