speaking governesses are highly sought after within large and
wealthy households and countries like Russia, Saudi Arabia,
France, and many others. Governesses will teach children within
the home paying close attention to their social development,
tutoring and language skills.
Caleen Ltd specialise in providing a governess services for our
clients in the UK and overseas as well as bilingual governesses
who provide the educational expertise where parents prefer to
educate their children privately at home.
A governess will provide complementary education and social
development skills to enable your children to reach their full
potential. Some families need to travel extensively due to work
or lifestyle, a governess will help prove a stable influence in
your children’s education and bridge the gaps where language and
education levels may vary. A governess provides invaluable
support for both parents and children, bringing expert teaching,
cultural and social enhancement skills to school aged children
between the ages of 3 and 16 years.
A qualified governess will come from a teaching background and
have a minimum of 5 years professional childcare or teaching
experience. A governess may have specialised training in music,
sport or art and may be employed to develop a child’s full
potential within this area.
The average working day of a governess is usually around 10
hours a day, 5 days a week with weekends free, although this can
vary from post to post and can be negotiated pre-contract. A
governess post is primarily a live-in one, and depending on
where the family live, they may provide the governess with
either on-site or off-site housing within easy reach of the
family home. A governess will have minimal responsibility for
housekeeping and cleaning, other than related to the children.
Caleen Ltd identify the specific skills and qualities required
to provide only the very best candidates and can help provide
information on work visas, employment contracts, salary scales
and probationary periods.
Our governess candidates come with years of experience in
tuition and care of pre-school and school-aged children. Caleen
Ltd take care to match candidates with your family’s ethos and
needs and we will be happy to provide non obligatory advice on
the right governess for your childcare.
