How to become a great British Nanny?
I first came across such positions whilst working as a TEFL teacher in Hong Kong, earning in one month what I could in a week working in Moscow. I loved my job teaching children and helping them to embrace their talents so the idea of doing this in Russia for a private family seemed like a wonderful opportunity and next step in my teaching and travel adventure.
Having been successfully placed with a wonderfully kind Russian-Armenian family in Moscow, I’m delighted to be able to share my insights with you regarding how to become a great British Nanny.
I can honestly say that working as a nanny in Moscow was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The opportunity to work with children in this unique environment gave me so much joy and the cultural insights I gained through being part of the family were incredible. Yes, working as a nanny can most certainly be challenging and there will be days when you feel so far from home but I can assure you that it’s a golden opportunity that you’ll be so glad you went for.
Over the coming months I’ll be blogging more about nanny life from a personal perspective and in the meantime if you have any questions please contact us! Our aim is to place passionate childcare experts and educators with their perfect families. If this sounds like you we would be delighted to hear from you.
