When it comes to raising a family, it goes without saying that parents do everything they can to ensure their child or children receive all that they need to grow and develop successfully into happy, healthy and capable individuals. Private and dedicated educators are often employed to assist in this care, relieving additional stress off of the parent’s shoulders and giving them peace of mind in the process.
However, not everyone knows the difference between the types of educators and childcare professionals available. That’s why Dux Recruitment has developed this helpful guide to assist parents in understanding these roles and empowering them to choose the type of educator best suited to their individual needs.
Private teachers are available for all ages and teach specific subjects for a few hours per week in structured lessons. Private teachers can educate and care for students of any age. This can include helping toddlers with speech development, to helping children with school subjects or Cambridge YLE exams. They are also available to help teens preparing for IELTS or SAT exams, or even adults who wish to improve their business English.
If you wish for your child or children to develop a certain skill or improve in a subject, then a private teacher is what you are looking for. Private teachers are available to come to your home to teach subjects ranging but not limited to mathematics, music, languages, sciences or even sports. They can also assist your child/ren to cope and thrive at various stages in their lives, such as getting settled into a new school or preparing to pass a big exam.
These educators usually live in their own private accommodation and make home visits to teach their students. They vary in age, experience, and qualification because these factors are all dependent on the type of tutoring that is required of them. The one thing that is consistent is that all educators are given free comprehensive training through Dux Recruitment to ensure they meet our high education standards.
It’s safe to say that regardless of who you are, being a parent to a newborn or toddler can be as tough as it is rewarding! Whether you are a new parent, have a few children in your care, or your family leave has come to an end and you are preparing to go back to work - a nanny is here to help!
Nannies are caregivers that look after children between the ages of 0 to 5 years old and are trained to provide a safe, nurturing and educational environment to your child or children. From feeding to playtime to nap time, a nanny’s goal is to bring happiness and joy while facilitating healthy physical and emotional development. Nannies also help parents by cleaning up after the child or children in their care, making housekeeping a lot easier to maintain. Depending on your needs, they can also assist with additional tasks such as transporting children to and from activities.
Nannies are often live-in positions, ensuring they are available when needed to assist with childcare. While these educators may vary in experience, Dux recruitment ensures they are all qualified through our comprehensive childcare training, which is free and compulsory to complete before they set foot in your home.
