The word nanny gets tossed around a lot and is often used in conjunction with the title babysitter. For many caregivers, this distinction is incredibly important, and we're going to share with you why now!
However, the differences and responsibilities are just as numerous, if not more so!
Knowing the commitment, experience, expected duties, and consistent energy that is required of a nanny, it can be easy to see why he/she may recoil when being referred to as a "babysitter." Nannies take their careers seriously, and have a lot of responsibility! A great nanny will take care of your children as if they are his/her own. This includes playing with them, setting limits and daily disciplines to guide them, planning engaging activities, and nourishing their bodies and minds!
But what in the world is a Governess?
If you're torn between which caregiver to hire, we can help you make the distinction and decision today. Feel free to shoot us an email at hello@KithAndKinNYC.com
