I am one!
Shout out to all nannies in the world right now! To those who have been furloughed or those, like myself that are working even harder in these strange times.
More to films…
As a child growing up, my favourite films were The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and Harriet the Spy. All of which have nannies in them!
As an adult, I love Uptown Girls and The Nanny Diaries. Obvious in the title of the latter, but again, nannies!!!
More to books…
Mary Poppins is perhaps the most loveable Nanny. By PL Travers.
Nurse Matilda is a set of three books that were written on the 60’s and 70’s of a Maternity Nurse turned nanny who looked after the naughty Browns children. Heard that story line before? That is because it was adapted to Nanny Mcphee by Emma Thompson!
There is a very important reason this blog is on Nannies this week.
UK Nannies Matter Campaign
I am proud to announce that I am a founding campaign partner of The UK Nannies Matter Campaign.
It’s all about helping Nannies be recognised as Professionals. The campaign is founded by the wonderful Nannies at UK Nanny Ltd, Helen McCarthy and Maria Culley and Laura Hellfeld, founder of KoKoPie Families.
Together, Nannies are stronger.
The campaign is to empower nannies, regulate it as a profession to give a clear career path and safety for Nannies as well as showing the parents the safeguarding of the children and value, quality and standard they can expect from a Professional Nanny.
