Our nanny works from 7:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. The children go down for a nap around 1:00 and sleep until at least 3:00, but are often still asleep when she finishes work. She has a one-hour lunch break and does a bit of tidying (lunch things, puts toys away) and occasionally a bit of lunch prep for the next day. This still leaves her with a very long break and she will often have a nap. Does this seem ok? I think she is always up before the kids and/or hears them when they wake, though yesterday my husband came home early and she didn't hear him come in, which is a bit worrying (I work from home but am generally in my office at the top of the house with the door closed). So, is napping 'on the job' acceptable for a nanny when the kids are asleep too? Thanks!
