Miss Governess International recruits childcare professionals with a minimum of 3 years childcare experience (or 2 years of experience + qualifications). We specialize in providing the highest standard of caegivers and mainly recruit nannies and governesses with relevant childcare qualifications. There is a variety of courses that lead to a child care certification, nanny schools or several qualifications confirming that a caregiver has had proper childcare training. However, employers (parents) may also select a Candidate without any formal qualifications, as there is no formal, legal requirement for a particular qualification in order to work as a nanny.

Most university courses that provide an education on child development, childhood education, social work with children and child psychology do so in a classroom setting. This means that academically these courses are advanced and it requires a minimum standard of education and ability even to enroll in these courses. The resulting marks awarded for passing these courses are also an easy way to judge a student's academic performance.
