Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
Hire a Happy Nanny Inc. is officially open for business - and they'd like you to throw away everything you think you know about nannies. The company is an innovative educational consulting firm which provides placement and video pre-screening services for families seeking a true professional to care for their children. And they're taking on nanny industry standards with a social-enterprise-inspired passion.
“We run the firm much like a talent management company,” says Hire a Happy Nanny founder Karen Black, from her new office at The Center For Social Innovation in downtown Toronto. “We bring in a small roster of unique and wonderful educators, each with particular skills we know will resonate with families in completely different ways.”
Happy Nannies and Governesses are recruited locally. They’re educated, fluent in English and provide private childcare centered around play-based, experiential learning and whole child development. And they're hired as in-house employees. With benefits.
Black is using tech-savvy skills to pair Toronto families with her nannies through video pre-screening, initial interviews, digital portfolios and security-protected online contract signing with IP tracking. Careful attention is paid to marrying families and nannies whose values and child development philosophies are like-minded.
Black had become increasingly aware that qualified educators in Toronto weren’t working in their field and yet hadn’t considered careers as nannies -- while families seemed to constantly be searching for exceptional private caregivers. She saw the opportunity to create meaningful change within the industry by redefining the image surrounding Canadian nannies and by introducing the position of governess: a respected and well-compensated private educator position popular across the United Kingdom and European Union.
“Happy family-nanny relationships are based on open communication, mutual respect and appreciation. That’s how we approach every aspect of our work.”
