A Governess concentrates on the intellectual and social development of your children. Their focus is on the education, rather than nursery duties.  Governesses are professional tutors who are trained to the highest standard in order to provide your children with an outstanding and personal level of education. They come with years of experience in the care and tuition of pre-school and school-aged children. Our governesses are placed both in London and throughout the world. We have a selection of British, bilingual or multilingual governesses available to start at a very short notice.
