Qualities of Our Elite Nannies
The Nanny Agency is always searching for the best of the best; nannies that have a heart of gold and a passion for caring for children.

So what differentiates Good Nannies from Elite Nannies?
Well, first and foremost it is impossible to reach the higher levels of the nanny industry unless you have a genuine passion for what you do. As is the case in many other career areas, it is simply impossible to get ahead or even get by if this is not what you want to do and all you want to do. If you’re out to make a bit of extra money on the side or simply need the experience on your resume, you can forget about it. Great nannies have a relentless and insatiable passion for everything they do and will stop at nothing to look after those in their care, along with the best interests of the family they work for as a whole. This kind of passion you simply cannot fake or be taught.
Reliability also comes into the equation as it’s one thing to be available only at select hours during the week and another to be there pretty much around the clock as and when needed. To be a great nanny doesn’t mean giving up your whole life and never clocking off again, but it most certainly does mean knowing where your priorities lie. This is of particular important for those signing up for the first time as it’s during these early years that a nanny’s reputation will be set in stone – give the impression your priorities lie elsewhere and you may struggle.
Some nannies specialize on watching over the kids, others are great at standard domestic chores and then there are those that go the whole hog to do pretty much everything across the board. This simple fact of the matter is that the more you’re willing and able to do, the better your long-term prospects will be. Some nannies turn their noses up at the idea of cleaning the family bathroom – others relish the opportunity to get stuck into an essential job. The same goes for cooking, looking after pets and even helping with light yard work. Versatility is a truly desirable trait in any nanny.
Everyone has bad moods, bad days and in some cases bad weeks, but as a nanny you’re expected to leave your problems at the door and remain positive at all times. This also applies to any jobs you’re asked to carry out, which should be met with enthusiasm and confidence rather than a tired shrug and a sense of general apathy.
Your attitude will rub off on everyone else in the home – positivity therefore being the order of the day, every day.
