Do you desire to make a difference in a child’s life? To partner with someone in providing basic needs, discipline, nurturing and structure in their daily life? And to get paid to do just that? Then consider becoming a nanny.
Becoming a nanny is to forever change your life. You partner with a family, to help raise their child. And you do so in the closeness and familiarity of home, to provide comfort and love to the child.
Here’s why you’ll love being a nanny:
It’s FUN! – Being a nanny can be just plain fun. Part of what you are getting paid to do is play. Whether you are running with the child outdoors, or building block towers, it can be great fun to join in on the active imagination’s children have.
Getting to help a tiny human grow – In partnering with parents, you not only provide for the child’s basic day to day physical needs, you have the opportunity to teach them. Whether that is social skills, or their ABC’s. You get the opportunity to set the stage for their future life.
You are able to see your work in action – As a nanny, you have the opportunity to witness the fruit of your labor in the most unexpected moments. Like when they share a toy, or a piece of food with peers. You are keenly aware of the impact you have on their life.
You grow with them – Being a nanny is not only about teaching the child and watching them grow. It’s about growing yourself. You learn how to communicate on all levels. With parents as your boss/employee relationship. And in verbal and non-verbal methods in day to day interactions with the child. And you learn patience, just through the nature of repetitively having to teach a child.
You become part of a family – And what a beautiful feeling that is. You become an integral part of that family’s life. And even after the children grow, and need you less and less, you are remembered as vital part in that chapter of their life.
Being a nanny is a great work with lots of amazing rewards. And a job that you can look forward to going to every day. And who doesn’t want that?
