With the evolving world, it's no longer men who chase careers but also women. Thus, women are leaving their traditional roles of taking care of the homes, as well as raising up their kids to be hired as domestic staff to do their usual domestic work and help in the upbringing of children. A nanny is hired to help in the upbringing of children in a home set-up. The roles of a nanny vary as one may be needed to work part-time or full-time; though this depends on the household.
Previously, nannies required little or no requirements for them to be hired. Nevertheless, the world has changed; some experiences and qualifications are needed for their job positions.
Requirements to work as a Luxury nanny
You need a certificate or diploma in childcare from a recognized institution for you to become a luxury nanny. This suggests a nanny is trained on how to deal with children, have knowledge of first aid, child nutrition and educational play for kids for various age groups. This suggests that the training can vary from one to three years at most with 60 % being in class and 40 % field work in various homes, child hospitals, day nurseries and junior schools.
For some families, a nanny ought to be bilingual, especially in royal, influential and celebrity families as they travel a lot around the world. Such families need someone who is conversant with various languages as a nanny will be required to travel around and taking care of the children at the same time.
Personality matters. Some agencies will train a nanny on how to relate with the kids as well as their parents. The nanny is also expected to slow to anger and full of spirits. She should be always be have a smile on her face throughout, and maintain composure at all times.
The way one presents herself is also important. A nanny is expected to keep her fashion sense to bear minimum with little to no make-up on the job, no long nails, no heels, no fancy hairstyles and decent clothing required. She might be required to have a uniform always.
Creativity is paramount as the nanny will be handling young kids from the age of 0-7 years and these kids are mostly playful. Since some kids are from influential families, they tend to miss some things like going to movies, playing at the park or going to the beach as normal kids and because of this they may start craving for such things. As a nanny, it's your job to keep them engaged and also feel fulfilled, e.g building a cubby house from furniture and blankets.
References also are important. Influential families are interested in hiring someone who has some experience in this profession. It is through this that they believe that you are competent enough to handle their children. Background check will always be done and thus, you need to ensure that you don't have any shortcomings or misgivings within your track record. It is also important to be open to scrutiny.
In other words, you need to ensure that you have appropriate skills and qualification for you to be considered a luxury nanny.
