What distinguishes us from other nanny services? Nanny Education!
With a three month nanny education residential program, English Nanny & Governess School has the ability to conduct a thorough background screening to ensure that every candidate is qualified to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your children.
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. To qualify to attend ENGS, our in-depth screening consists of:
Psychological/sociological review by independent Licensed Professional Clinical counselor
Five professional letters of recommendation
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) national clearance
Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) state clearance
Local police clearance
Driving records from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV)
Current physical examination and TB test
Notarized non-child abuse declaration
Also Available to You:
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?
Education Begins At Birth®, our slogan for a quarter of a century, is NOW supported by the latest research on infant brain development, that 90% of life's learning takes place in the first three years of life.
Our courses provide techniques for stimulating a child's Intellect, Imagination and Innovation. For 30 years, we have been successfully educating our American students through an intensive academic curriculum and hands-on training program. Our coursework includes:

Our students come from all over the U.S. They range in age from 18 to the 60s. They vary in background, interests, and talent and they all want to make a difference in a child's life.

I need childcare. What are my different options?
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 physical 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.
