The Nanny Podcast is exactly what it sounds like. We talk about everything Nanny and Childcare, we talk to nannies, governesses, maternity nurses, families, child psychologists, recruitment professionals and more. Brought to you by Riviera Nannies The Nanny Podcast is a platform where we can talk freely about all the great and not so awesome things about working as a nanny and working with a nanny.
Is google your friend?
Today I want to talk to you about figuring out who people are, using simple tools like search engines online. Always a good first step to start building the image of the person you are trying to figure out.
First I want to tell you that all the things you find are clues to build the image of the person you are trying to figure out. Try to see it from an as objective place as you can, it will help you get a better idea.
Dressing for the job
Today we are going to talk about something we sometimes hear from our families. That the nanny is dressed inappropriately.
Have you ever heard the expression dress for the job you want to have?
To be clear, I don’t think there is anything categorically wrong dressing in any way at all.
Now you know what I think, what do you think? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what you think :)
The way to kindness and compassion
Today we are going to talk about the simplest way to kindness and compassion. It’s something that means a lot to me. I try to do it every chance I get :)
I hear comments from both nannies and families, as well as parents and kids, it’s all connected, about how they want to be appreciated. How they want to be heard and seen. Acknowledged, as they are.
Sometimes there is a bit of confusion to what a governess is. We recently had a client say they needed a housekeeper or a governess. That’s kind of like saying you need bananas or batteries. Completely different things :)
A governess is a teacher. It is a quite old fashioned position in a household that is much less common now than it was in Victorian England.
Nanny vs. Daycare
This week we are going to talk about some of the differences between nanny and daycare as childcare options. This is I suppose geared towards families making the choice, and can be helpful for nannies both as a perspective, but also to have a leg to stand on when negotiating and talking to a family.
What do you ask when interviewing?
Today we are going to talk about what you ask when you are interviewing, either with an agency, or for a job.
I have a pretty radical view on collaborations that most people don’t have. Are you ready? I don’t believe in hierarchy. At least not in the traditional sense. I don’t think anyone is above or below, I think we all bring value and that it would benefit us all to see that value in each other.
