What is an English nanny?

English Nanny

An English nanny is sometimes referred to as a Governess. Her primary responsibilities are to care for a child or children, and she is typically a live-in employee. English nannies do not have to have formal training, but there are school available which train professional nannies. Families who hire English nannies that have graduated with a professional certificate typically enter into a contract with the nanny that includes health insurance, tax benefits, and paid vacations. Many of these schools are affiliated with the American Council of Nanny Schools and the International Nanny Association.
