We want to say thank you. Thank you for holding it all together during this pandemic. Thank
you for going to work every day whilst the world around you stopped. Thank you for taking
care of the next generation reassuring them at every turn when you haven’t always been so
sure yourself. We’re so proud of the work you’re doing and the way you’re maneuvering through this storm.
These past months have brought sudden and unexpected changes. In the beginning, some
of you were required to go to work whilst some of you were furloughed. Some of you had
love ones you feared for and some of you feared for your own safety, yet throughout it all,
you stood tall and continued to grow. Your daily work schedules have uprooted, your
freedom of adventure with the children has been capped and your beloved playgroups, only
just beginning to filter back into society almost 10 months later.
No one will ever truly understand the impact on the nanny world of the closing of the parks,
the buses being off-limits, the playgroups ending and playdates suddenly becoming out of
bounds like us. We’ve lived it, breathed it and what’s more, got through it. As the world is
slowly being filtered back into a more normal way of life, the nanny world still remains a few
steps behind. Parents are still working from home; your arts and crafts ideas have been
exhausted and children’s outside activities are limited.
At Real Nannies, we want to let you know that the hardest days are over and better days are
to come. If you can get through this with such poise, you, my dear nannies, can get through
We truly believe that behind every heroic front-line worker; essential employee, doctor and
nurse is a heroic nanny caring for their children, so they can meet the needs of everyone
