Being child-centric as a nanny is very important. It helps you meet the needs of the children in your care, build trust with the family, support their development, ensure their safety, and create a positive environment for them to thrive.
Here are the five key factors of a child-centric nanny:
Child Participation: Encouraging children's participation in decisions that impact their lives while considering their age, maturity, and ability.
Child Development: Recognize and promote children's physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and cultural development and provide them with the right opportunity for growth and education
Inclusivity: Ensuring that all children, regardless of their background, gender, disability, ethnicity, or other characteristics, have equal access to opportunities, services, and resources
Family & Community Involvement: Recognizing the importance of families and communities in the lives of children and involving them in their support systems.
Child Protection: Ensuring children's safety, security, and well-being by safeguarding them from harm, abuse, violence, exploitation, and neglect.
