Thinking about being a nanny?
Having fun is one of the main functions of being a nanny. No kid wants to sit inside quietly all day, and you’ll get to invent new games, take them to the zoo, create dens out of cushions and be plain old silly like you’re a kid again yourself.
2. You’ll teach them (almost) everything they know
Sure, their parents might claim it’s their genes, but you know a big part of their walking and talking is because you’ve put the hours in. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing kids learn new skills because you’ve shown them how. Whether that’s reading, cartwheels or just throwing a ball.
3. You can hand them back
Kids are great, however, it can be exhausting chasing after them all day. As a governess you get to have all the fun of playing games and planning outings, but you also get to hand them back at the end of the day and can go and live a footloose and fancy free life again once you’re off duty.
4. You have the freedom to move anywhere
Nannies are needed all over the world, so it’s a great skill to have if you want to travel and visit new countries, especially if you can teach the kids English. A great way to do this is to get yourself a TEFL certification.
5. No two days are the same
As a nanny, every day is different, however much you might try to have a routine. In most cases this means you need to be flexible with your plans, and this can be much more fun than a boring office job.
Nothing is more fun than forgetting you’re an adult, and running around having a water fight or playing hide and seek. It takes a lot of energy and it’s an awful lot of fun too
7. You can make a difference
Kids are easily influenced, and the values you teach them can last a lifetime. You have the power to teach them to be kind and polite, and to respect other people.
8. It’s a great experience
Whether you plan to have kids yourself or not, being a governess is a great experience that will teach you life skills. You’ll also get to become part of another family’s life and learn from them.
9. Save on rent
If you’re a live-in governess or provided accommodation by the family, you’ll save a considerable amount of money on rent and bills, meaning you can save that towards creating your dreams for the future, whether that be travelling, buying a house etc.
10. You will love it!
In most cases, you’ll grow to love the kids you look after, and they will love you back! The only downside is that it makes it very hard to say goodbye!
