The role of a governess can vary based on the needs and preferences of the hiring family. Traditionally, a governess is an educator who provides private tuition and often takes on additional responsibilities related to the care and development of children within a household. The modern Governess often combines elements of education, mentorship, and childcare to create a well-rounded and enriching experience for the children under their care.

Key aspects of a Governess’s role include:

  • Education
  • Language Skills
  • Social and Cultural Exposure
  • Behavioral and Moral Guidance
  • Travel
  • Flexible Learning Environment
  • Partnership with Parents
