I am not sure what it was like for you but for me 2017 kicked off with a lot of new ideas, New Year’s resolutions and a completely blank page in the book. And I am not alone. A majority of people start the New Year with a different health plan, the intention to learn a new language, make more time for sports or pick up a new hobby; all ways to make sure 2017 will be the best year so far.

The ‘state of play’ of nannying here and in the USA

The ‘state of play’ of nannying here and in the USA

I’ve recently returned from a visit to the USA during which I attended the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) conference. Those who attend this conference are running nanny agencies all over America and beyond, so collectively they provide a unique perspective on what is happening in the nanny industry in the States specifically, but with implications for all of us.

I subsequently interviewed Daryl Camarillo, who runs Stanford Park Nannies in the Silicon Valley area of California, and Kathy Webb, who runs HomeWork Solutions, a nanny payroll and tax compliance business on the other side of the country in Virginia. I wanted to get their views on where the nanny industry is  heading. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they describe issues that have many similarities to what is happening in Australia.
