G&C nanny characteristics
In addition to the characteristics that you may expect from someone working in the baby and child care industry, we expect the following characteristics from our nannies:
High degree of flexibility
you act calmly and adequately, both in irregular working hours and unexpected situations to which you may have to respond. You are prepared for everything. You are creative in finding solutions and you are stress-resistant.
You are in total control and you stick to the daily schedule quickly and effortlessly. You have already figured out yesterday how the day will be run today. It takes a lot to get you out of control!
You know exactly how to deal with children AND their parents. You can feel mood and tension well and act accordingly. You offer stability and tranquility for the entire family. Children feel comfortable and at ease with you.
As a nanny, you may hear and see a lot. It goes without saying that you handle this confidently and treat all the information about the family with the greatest respect. This means you do not tell your friends and family about the confidential matters in the household. Discretion has a high priority to you.
Eager to learn
As a Görtz & Crown nanny you have to keep wanting to develop and make sure you remain up-to-date on the latest trends in the field of child care and upbringing. Deepening and broadening your knowledge in your field is a necessity for you.
In the morning when I arrive at work, I see a young boy with a big smile sitting in front of the window. I love seeing that smile. It is wonderful to see how happy he is to see me.
