Governess Agency: Hire Governesses - Award Winning Staffing Employment Services!
At our London-based Governess Agency, we work with British and International families to place exclusive nanny candidates and governesses in positions worldwide.
A governor or governess placement hire will develop a child’s English education with diverse and interesting topics. Typical duties include: planning lessons, days out and accompanying children to school and other activities.
A placement with our governess agency will prepare a child for his adult life with regards to behaviour, etiquette and education. At EED recruitment agency, our British and international household private staff often liaise with a child’s schoolteachers to ensure their home education complements that which they receive at school. In this way, we make sure that a child reaches his full social and linguistic potential.
Clients know that employing a native speaking professional governor or governess will our personal international recruitment agency will help your child to acquire a second language like a native speaker.
The immersive nature of being around a governess means that the child begins to read, converse and ultimately think in English whilst being under the specialist supervision of a great behavioural role model. The candidate may support the charge in sports and keep them busy with arts and crafts, music or even specialising in learning additional languages.
After school the governor or governess may go home or accompany the charge(s) to after-school activities such as swimming lessons, horse-riding, dance, singing, chess or martial arts.
The candidate may take part in the activity with the charge (depending on what the activity is) or may simply oversee the child’s wellbeing, general behaviour and speak to them in English (or other languages).
When at home, evenings often consist of language lessons (perhaps following school guidelines, homework or a syllabus prepared specifically for the charge by the governess) or tutoring in maths and other school subjects. The candidate may prepare an evening meal, depending on your preference.
After dinner is often a more relaxing activity – perhaps English reading or an English language film, some form of games or leisure activities and bed, again all according to the children’s ages or the family’s individual preferences. The governess may prepare the children for bed (a night-time routine including changing, washing, brushing teeth etc.) or this may be the role of a nanny or family member.
Weekend days tend to offer much more time for the governess to spend valuable speaking time with the charge(s).
Many families take advantage of the extra free time to travel to parks, leisure centres, take part in extra sports activities or even to travel to their dacha together. Typically extra time is allotted to catching up on homework, language lessons or any other relevant tutoring.
Typically families see language progression with a governor or governess within a few months, and from a year onwards can expect to see English (or other language fluency) for the child.
A governor or governess is perfect for a family who have their own busy commitments, as they tend to work around the family schedule, fitting in lessons, conversation and games whenever they see an opportunity whilst all the time providing an English language environment and being an appropriate role model for their charge(s).
