Understanding Fit: Decoding the Models of Nanny Care

Every job isn’t right for every nanny. Understanding what makes a job the right fit can lead to greater job satisfaction, increased job performance, and workplace longevity. Decoding the three models of nanny care and identifying which model aligns with a nanny’s caregiving approach is essential in choosing the right job and making the right match. From management style to the role a nanny plays in the family, analyzing the parents’ expectations and contrasting them to what brings a nanny job satisfaction and a sense of purpose in the workplace is the secret to finding the right fit and making long-term matches.
