There are two reasons that many of our families ask us to help them find the perfect bilingual nanny. As a high profile nanny agency, we recognise these two very different requirements which are:
(a) to give a child fluency in a second language or,
(b) because the family is itself bilingual.
Helping your child learn a second language fluently
For many families, giving a child fluency in a chosen second language is a key consideration when choosing the right nanny for their household. A qualified nanny who can teach a child to speak French, German, Spanish, or even Russian, Mandarin or Arabic can give a child a superb advantage.
Of course the main language that nearly every highly experienced nanny is required to speak is English – and our London Nanny service is inundated with requests for English-speaking overseas nannies. Whether you’re seeking a nanny to give your child a wonderful grasp of Italian or want the right qualified nanny to teach your little one Portuguese, our team of qualified consultants are on hand to introduce you to the ideal candidate to meet your needs.
Young children pick up second languages with ease and soon become both confident and fluent. This can be a huge asset throughout a child’s academic career as well as delivering excellent social skills as language development is seen as a key indicator of social competence.
Nannies for bilingual or multilingual families
If your household speaks more than one language, it can be a real asset to have domestic staff who are fluent in more than one of those languages – so whether you need a nounou, niñera or ayah, we’re the childcare agency to meet your needs. Having an overseas nanny who can speak the dominant language of the family simplifies so much of domestic life and where a private tutor is also employed, a bilingual nanny can easily support the language development of a child and give them a huge head start both academically and socially.
Of course it’s not enough for a nanny to speak the right languages, every family also wants a qualified nanny with experience who will smooth family life and fit into everyday activities. That’s why we take extra time to understand the requirements of each family seeking a bilingual nanny whether at home or overseas.
Choosing the right bilingual Nanny
For many families, a second language really matters – it’s an investment in the future success of a child or a recognition of family heritage, alternatively it might be part of a plan to relocate abroad at some future point or an absolute requirement, given that the family will one day be posted to an area where that second language is vital to a full and happy life. In all these cases, choosing the right bilingual nanny is essential.
