Working as a Nanny in Paris

Wednesday, 07.11.2018 at 04:07PM

An ever popular base for French and expat families, Paris is the capital of France. Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centres of finance, commerce, fashion, science, and the arts. As such, lots of families live in the different areas of Paris. Paris’ museums, landmarks and access to many different types of schools make it a wonderful place to raise children.

Children are taught English from the age of 7 in schools in France on a bi-weekly basis, however locals believe the English taught in the public system can sometimes be rather basic. Many parents look for ways for their children to speak more English and widen their vocabulary. In a cosmopolitan city like Paris there is an opportunity for some parents to hire an English-speaking nanny to communicate with their children in English from a young age and open their minds to a different culture.

In comes the English-speaking nanny!


It has been widely proven that children can adopt a new language more easily if they are regularly exposed to it at a young age. Learning through play is one of the fastest ways for youngsters to get to grips with a new language.

Top Tip for Nannying in France from a French person:


“Who wouldn’t like the opportunity to order a croissant at any time of the day? Working as a nanny in Paris is very cultural; it is lovely to work a stone’s throw away from the Eiffel Tower and to be able to take children to some of the best museums in the World throughout the year!”
