5 MAJOR Keys For Nanny Success

Being a star Nanny can be a funny and stressful thing. Unfortunately, the journey onto becoming the best Nanny possible doesn’t always include guidelines or a manual on how to do it right way. Even if one has had years of experience, they’re still in a learning process, being every child is different than the one before. Here at Belle Maison Agency, we’ve compiled a few tips to ensure your ultimate Nanny success

The following are some of our 5 most important tips that can go a long way in creating a healthy relationship between a Nanny and the children


Tip 1: Create The Right Ambiance

Creating sensations of joy, love, care, and discipline within yourself and allowing those sensations to flow through the home. The best things to do for the children is to give them unconditional love and support. Create an atmosphere where the children’s intelligence can blossom like a flower. Children bring fresh eyes to an old world, so sit with them and see the world as they do, encourage them to create their own path

Tip 2: Know The Needs Of Your Child

This advice comes with knowing that there are no standard rules for all children, each child is very different. There are no perfect lines that map out how much to do or not to do for your child. Different children may need different levels of attention, love, and discipline. Knowing what your child needs, is listening to them and determining what in your opinion is the right thing to do

Tip 3: Learn From Your Child

It is the greatest assumption and fastest instinct for all nannies caring for newborns, that they must immediately become the teacher. But from the moment you enter the home, it is not immediately time to become the teacher but is actually time to become the student. Children teach us what it means to be joyous and what it means to truly love, so in that we must learn from them. A Nanny’s job is most rewarding when she able to gain knowledge from the family and children she helps

Tip 4: Just Let Them Be

Control is the hardest thing for any nanny to give up; you instinctively as a Nanny want to control every situation regarding the child’s life because you want to protect them, but if you as a Nanny are truly concerned about your children you must teach them ways to be self-sufficient. A great quote by Sadhguru states, “The process of loving should always be a liberating process, not an entangling process.” You want the child to be able to survive on their own, so allow children to discover the world on their own, spend time in nature, spend time by themselves, and give them the space to create their own ideas. Create an atmosphere of love

Tip 5: Let Joy Into Your Life

Your only goal as a Nanny is to help raise the children well, and that first starts with you. You must be happy to raise a child well, children learn from the behaviors of those they spend time with. If you truly want to be a successful Nanny you have to make sure you are patient, peaceful, loving, and energetic


“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
