Professional western childcare is a vocation that is often misunderstood, especially in Hong Kong. A nanny’s role is not simply to look after the children, but to enhance the family dynamic as a whole. A sincere nanny sees her role as a vocation rather than just a job. The function of a nanny to act as a proxy parent for busy working families when mum and dad cannot be home. Not only will the nanny be responsible for all aspects of childcare and child development, but they can also act as a family assistant, manage household staff, plan healthy menus for the children and even attend parent-teacher meetings should the parents be unable to do so. Contrary to popular belief, teachers and nurses do not necessarily make good nannies. Being a good nanny has less to do with her qualifications and professional experience with children, but more to do with her personality and her ability to work well within the constraints of a domestic environment. Rent-A-Mum understands what makes a good nanny and we are able to introduce you to a wide range of personnel with various levels of qualifications and experience in accordance with your needs and budget.
