With an intensive three month nanny education residential program, English Nanny & Governess School provides you with a Certified Professional Nanny or a Certified Professional Governess. Over these three months, our expert faculty and staff get to know each and every student to ensure that every candidate is qualified to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your children. We know our students and can determine the perfect fit for your family.
We see our students every day and know their personalities, skills, and strengths.
With small classes, our students are able to develop an intimate, personal relationship with our dedicated faculty. These close relationships continue throughout the years as members of the faculty make themselves available to offer the benefits of their expertise to both you and our graduates.
Our students are screened extensively. They must pass throrough federal and local background checks, driving checks, and psychological examinations. Upon graduation, our graduates are available for worldwide travel and placement. In addition, each qualified, degreed "practicum mother" offers you their evaluation of the performance of the candidate you are considering.
What distinguishes our Professional Nannies and Professional Governesses from other caregivers?
All of our graduates have been trained and certified by courses that provide techniques for stimulating a child's Intellect, Imagination, and Innovation. For 34 years, we have been successfully educating our students through an intensive academic curriculum and hands-on training program. Our coursework includes:
Child growth, behavior and development
Cultural enrichment; literature, art, music and Creative Play
Child care; health, nutrition, etiquette

Education Begins At Birth®, our slogan for one third of a century, is NOW supported by the latest research on infant brain development, which shows that 90% of life's learning takes place in the first three years of life.
Our students come from all across the United States. They range in age from 18 to 60. They vary in background, interests, and talent and they all want to make a difference in a child's life.
Certified Professional Nannies and Certified Professional Governesses are educated and trained to provide a fun filled, challenging, and safe environment for your children. We look forward to working with you in finding the perfect match for your family!
HIRING A NANNY OR GOVERNESS
Professional Nanny: the Professional Nannies have received the education preparing them to enhance their charges' physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural, and cognitive development through the many courses of the extensive curriculum taught by our distinguished faculty. A minimum of a high school diploma is required.
Professional Governess: with the minimum of a Baccalaureate degree, the Professional Governess has the expertise to provide a more rigorous educational component. They learn all that the Professional Nanny is taught with additional extensive assignments. They are qualified to have a greater focus on education and tutoring of their charges.
Hiring an Au pair: the au pair program is a worldwide cultural exchange visit for young adults to allow them the opportunity to spend a year in America. In exchange for free room and board, plus a small stipend, the au pair assists with childcare and household duties. No nanny training is required.
Hiring a nanny online: there are many online nanny matching sites with thousands of people to choose from. As there is no interview, the web allows people to fabricate their credentials and expertise. There is no screening, which means you will have to make your own determination of the applicant's suitability and reliability.
Hiring a nanny through an agency: as there are no required regulations in the United States, a nanny agency's credibility can be widely varied. The International Nanny Association (INA) and the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) both recommend quality standards for agencies but are powerless to enforce them. Most nanny agencies do conduct personal interviews of their applicants; however, the meetings are brief. Screening and background checks vary.
