How to Be an Excellent Nanny – Part 2: Homework Help

We are receiving a lot of job orders from clients looking for Nannies who can also help their children with their homework. If you are a Nanny and have experience helping kids with their homework and studying, you should know that every kid is different and you must adapt to their personalities and how they absorb information.

Maybe it’s studying for a [ Read the rest…]

The floors looked shiny and new, but the household quickly found themselves slipping and sliding all over the place. What looked like a beautiful new floor was really an invisible ice skating rink in disguise! While the family appreciated the effort their housekeeper put into her work and the results, they did not appreciate this mistake that could’ve been dangerous.   Here are ways this situation could’ve been prevented: If you are a Housekeeper and are [ Read the rest…]

How to Be an Excellent Nanny – Part 1: How Being Detail Oriented Helps Keep Children Safe

Sometimes, Good Deeds Are Not Forgotten

Denise received a letter earlier this week from Martin Kusiak:

Dear Denise,

I really appreciate what you have had done for me. You probably do not remember but after having a job with the REDACTED family through my personal contact, you hired me at the REDACTED residence during the fall/winter season. It was a very valuable time which helped me get some amazing experience. Thanks to you I was able to work for the REDACTED family!

All my career started at the Greenhouse. You believed in me/gave me a chance and I am where I am.

Thank you for everything!
