A contract for a live-in nanny will be much more detailed than one for a live-out nanny. When you have a nanny in your home 24/7, there will be many more areas to cover in the contract. A live-in nanny contract should include information about curfew, telephone usage, hours off, car privileges and the nanny's visitors. The nanny and family should also discuss how meals are going to be handled and if the nanny is responsible for purchasing her own food. While it is perfectly acceptable to have a flexible schedule with a live-in nanny, it is not okay to stipulate in the contract that the nanny be available at any time. There must be consistent and agreed upon time off for the nanny, just as there is with any other out of the home employee. A live-in nanny contract should also specify the times that the family is going to be on vacation in the coming year, and if the nanny is going to be joining them.
