Trying Times; We’re Here To Help
Here at The Ivory Agency we understand the worldwide pandemic means that parents are facing difficult, sometimes impossible decisions! With the continued uncertainty regarding the fast approaching school year, parents are potentially looking at having to make an extremely challenging compromise. Depending on the options available for your particular school system, you may have to choose between sending your kids to school or choosing e-learning/online, while also having to figure out a work / life balance.
We understand that staying home whether you are working or not poses its own set of challenges. If you must continue working and cannot be at home but would prefer to keep your child at home or if you can’t make the time commitment and could benefit from having the support to help guide your children through online lessons, a governess who can watch over the children and ensure their educational needs are being satisfied is a great option. A governess will serve as a school aid, as someone who can be there to help the children understand what they are learning and answer any questions they may have. A governess can also serve as a proctor making sure the children are being studious and performing their school duties at a high level.
A Governess will Serve as your Child’s School Aid and Proctor
You may be considering pairing with other families for in-home schooling or a co-op method of education to provide your children with a somewhat normalized school year. The hope is to offer the kids the closest feeling to what a normal school year would provide, which includes the camaraderie and relationships developed when interacting with their peers. For those families that choose this style of learning until life goes back to normal, hiring a governess would serve parents very well.
