If there are differences in faith or observance, you and she should identify and discuss what are acceptable traditions to share.
Create a holiday schedule.
It should clearly show when your nanny will and won’t be working. Give her ample opportunity to make her holiday plans, and offer to help her make arrangements if needed. Consider giving her additional paid days off around the holidays, like Christmas Eve, to make sure she doesn’t lose any wages.
Encourage her and the kids to plan their own holiday party.
They can enjoy some special time together and exchange gifts. Decisions should be made with your nanny’s input and consent so that everyone feels at ease with the holiday plan.
