Governesses are mostly live-in nannies; they are expected to teach children and to modify their teaching methods to suit individual children, ensuring that they thrive.

All of our governesses can tutor English, and some are fluent in a second language. Jobs for governesses at London Governess are always in high demand, demonstrating client satisfaction with the quality of our business.

Nannies – Our main standards of choosing a nanny are as follows:

  • English language skill – native English-speaking nanny or fluent English speaker
  • Education and work experience – honoured UK qualifications supported by years of experience 
  • Reliability – dedicated nanny with a  high sense of responsibility
  • Caring and outgoing personality –  pleasant with a genuine interest in children and their well-being.

List of nanny types we offer:

  1. A live-in nanny is responsible for the complete care of a family’s children. Getting the children up, feeding them, keeping them engaged and active, taking them to the park or doctor’s appointments, cleaning their rooms and play areas, and washing and ironing their clothes are just some of the many tasks a live-in nanny would be required to do. A nanny of this type usually has a separate apartment or at least a room with a separate bathroom.
  2. A live-out nanny is also a person who provides childcare in her employer’s private home but in this case for fixed hours in the day. The family does not need to provide her with accommodation for the period of her employment.
  3. A temporary nanny will assist a family for a few days, weeks, or months. 
  4. A holiday nanny is one who goes with parents intending to have a relaxing vacation with some time just for themselves. 
  5. A bilingual nanny is a nanny who teaches children to speak or master a new language. Some of our nannies are native speakers of French, Russian & Spanish. This kind of service is more than welcome if parents have just moved to, or plan to move to a new country, so the children can adapt easily.  We send our nannies almost everywhere in the world!

Maternity nurses are required across the UK and worldwide. We are looking for both English or French nurses, as well as nurses of any other nationality who are fluent in English, experienced, and ready to work. Our maternity nurses are all highly trained, well-educated professionals with extensive experience, valid references, and have warm, loving, attentive personalities. We used to meet all prospective candidates in person, these days we interview by video call (Zoom, Whatsapp, etc.) because we like to see everyone, and not just rely on information by email. We thoroughly check all professionals to verify their working history, check references, and complete full DBS checks.

If you want a tutor or a teacher for your children to learn French, English or any other language over the space of weeks, months or years, we supply excellent private teachers and tutors. We offer a teacher companion for those who need to perfect their English or other skills. From students to busy executives, a teacher companion provides skilled tuition in a convenient way. Lessons can last a day, an hour, or any length of time between, and can take place anywhere that suits you. On the other hand, tutors are generally self-employed and hired on an hourly basis. A tutor can also be hired full time, especially to cover holiday periods and other occasions when children need intensive support, such as when preparing for exams. Our outstanding clients ask for tactful, properly trained, knowledgeable, and honest employees, and we are ready to provide exactly that.

We bring you the most qualified governesses, nannies, and tutors with the specific experience required.
