What Kind Of Nanny Are You?
Remember I mentioned I was now collaborating with a Sydney based nanny agency, Precious Peeps, as a contributor to their blog and website? Well yes, I did! If you missed it, you can read the full post here.
Well I just wanted to share something with you that I wrote for Precious Peeps. Essentially, I asked “What kind of nanny are you?”. Because, even though I think you’d really find it an interesting read, I really do want to know the answer as well! Because…
From early learning centres, to playgroups, to independent nannies to regular babysitters, there are many different labels for childcare providers. So many that it can be confusing. Not to mention that French Au Pair you ran into last week at the park! And once you’ve decided on being a nanny, you’ve then got to define what kind of nanny. Not that definition of status is particularly crucial. But if you’re looking for job satisfaction and successful task completion, it’d be good to understand what’s expected.
So what exactly is a nanny in these modern times?
Typically a nanny is required to care for the kids and all that concerns them. It can involve anything from eating habits, to extra curricular activities, to overseeing lesson plans, and to honing well-mannered little people.
Some nannies come and go. They spend their hours with the children, they smile and giggle, and make sure they’re well provided for and safe. Then they punch their time card and leave. Other nannies practically move in their possessions and claim a bedroom. They become part of the family. They live and breathe kids, they chat with MumBoss outside of “business hours” and visit on the weekends.
