Governesses have been around for a long time. A traditional nanny caters to a child’s physical and emotional needs while a governess focuses more on a child’s education and upbringing. A governess will work as a nanny, with the educational element included. You can’t expect a governess to do some housekeeping, but you may certainly expect her to educate your children and teach them proper manners.

Our educationally qualified professionals are wholly committed to raising your children to become intelligent, independent, and well-rounded individuals (with excellent manners to boot!)

Unique Governess service from UK & International Nannies

What a governess does

A governess is hired to provide top-notch education and contribute to a child’s upbringing in a private home. A governess normally works ten hours per day for five or six days a week, sometimes alone and sometimes alongside a nanny or a mother’s help.

Subjects covered by a governess

If you have school-aged children between the ages of 3 to 16 years, your governess will come in very handy. While teaching, she can cover a wide breadth of topics, including:

  • Maths
  • Language
  • History
  • Science
  • Speech
  • Music

Not only that, but the governess will also teach your children social skills and exceptional manners. The ultimate goal of the governess is to devote her entire job to helping raise intelligent and well-adjusted children in your family.

Our governesses’ qualifications

We can place governesses anywhere – not just in the UK. You may request a bilingual governess or one with a specific skillset (for example, a person who can play a musical instrument exceptionally well).

Our governesses often hold teaching qualifications, or excellent nanny qualifications. They also must possess social etiquette and cultural understanding. All in all, we select only the best professionals with top-notch credentials because we believe that your children deserve nothing but the best!

Specialised governesses

Some of our governesses specialize in a certain subject or type of education. If you’re looking for a professional with a specialized set of skills and qualifications to provide the best type of education and upbringing for your children, we will be more than happy to find one who fits all of your requirements. We understand how important it is to have the right person become such a big part of your children’s education and upbringing.
