Jetsetting: Tips and Tricks for Travelling with a Family

For many nannies, travel nannying seems like a dream come true, but rarely is it all smooth sailing. The jet setting session will help explain the reality of travelling with your nanny family. It will begin with a brief introduction of the facilitator’s experience and background as a travel nanny across five continents. It will then break down some best practices when it comes to travelling with your nanny family. It will explore five key components—clear communication, planning effectively, creating boundaries, setting expectations, and adapting to change. Nannies will be asked how they would deal with real life travel scenarios and discuss some helpful solutions as learned from the facilitator’s learned experiences. This will be an interactive workshop where nannies will develop skills to aid them in their future travel nannying adventures.
