Whether you are just getting started or looking for a change, finding a job in the childcare industry could be just the right fit!  Working with children can be a truly rewarding experience.  Think about it, you could play a role in a child’s first steps, first words, acing a test or simply having the honor of being a role model! Many nannies will say they enjoy the journey of both teaching and learning throughout the day!  

So, you have experience, whether it is personal or professional working with children, and you may be wondering, where do I go from here? You may even be looking for something to supplement yourself while you are furthering your education with your undergraduate or graduate degree.  While there are many routes you could take when it comes to getting started, for those a bit unsure or new to the industry, you may find it helpful to look for an agency that is able to help you through the journey.

Before you get started, take some time to gather your experience, again it can be both personal and professional.  Having a resume together will be very helpful in the interview stages for a family, or agency, to see your prior work history.  From there, it’s time to hit the ground running.  

When you work with a full-service agency, you have the support and guidance of a professional team experienced in working with families and nannies together!  This is a great way to get started!  They are there to help navigate scheduling, develop activities and assist with any issues that may arise.  

Additionally, agencies work with many families.  As such, you will have access to a flexible schedule, additional hours and the comfort of knowing a steady paycheck is something you can count on.  Depending on the agency, you may also have access to benefits and additional training.  

In a time where so many are reinventing themselves professionally due to so much uncertainty surrounding job security, happiness and long-term goals, now is the time to make a change. Get into a field that can bring you growth, happiness and long-term success! This is a wonderful time to take advantage of all that working with children can bring into your life.
