First of all, I want to thank everyone on this site for the fantastic advice and opinions I receive everytime I post a new thread. I lean on this site a lot and value this community so much!
I've posted in the past that I am ready to move on from my current nanny position. I believe that my time with this family has come to an end (sad) but it happens and I'm ready to move onto a family who is willing to pay me more. I've been with this family for almost 2 years and while the benefits are great compared to other nannies in my area I am underpaid compared to amount of work I perform on a daily basis and kids I take care of. Ideally, I do not want to be out of a job. I want to secure a new nanny job before I give my current family notice. What advice does anyone have on this situation? I have babysitting references that I can use but I'm concerned that a new family will not take babysitting references seriously. I was hoping to use my nanny family as a reference but I don't want them to know I'm leaving until I'm ready to tell them.
