Just a spoonful of sugar helps more than the medicine go down! Rather than rejecting Mary Poppins as an embarrasement to the profession we instead still love and embrace her which is a mystery to me. However seems she’s quitting on us and thats due to exploitation. Yep, she feels she’s not paid enough and doesn’t earn a living wage. At least if she is speaking for our American sisters in spirit, that what she’s saying. Check out Kristen Bell who seems to have perfected a 1930’s BBC radio version of an English accent. Kristen don’t you know all the savvy Nannies are hanging out in Hackney and Dalston these days with much more urban twangs to their accent and not a starched apron anywhere to be seen?
Riverside Cares supplies, supports and has been training Nannies since 1989. We value the work carried out by professional childcarers and believe they deserve a fair wage full rights enjoyed by all in the workforce and respect for their role. We would welcome your comments.
