Hand-picked for their caring, nurturing nature you won’t find better nannies (arguably) anywhere on the planet. Here’s what makes Jean Michel Cousteau Resort Fiji’s (JMC) nannies the world’s best.
Our nannies are hand-picked
Our nannies are hand selected for their nurturing nature, kindness and patience towards children. They’ve grown up helping raise siblings, cousins and watching their mothers, aunties and grandmothers tend to large, happy broods. This makes them naturally gifted in caring for littlies. Rocking a baby in their arms or singing to soothe an over tired toddler? It’s as natural as breathing for our rockstar nannies.
They make child caring look easy
Blessed with maternal instincts our nannies offer love, patience and kindness in spades. They intuitively understand children and kids are naturally drawn to their calm, motherly (and fun) nature. We don’t know how they do it but somehow, they manage to make caring for children look easy. They’ve got your back so you can have the type of holiday parents only dream of.
They’re known as baby whisperers
In Fiji the adage it takes a village is not just a glib saying – it’s still the accepted way to raise children. Most of our nannies are mums or soon to be mums and have grown up caring for children in the village. JMC’s special nannies have literally cared for and cast their magic on thousands of babies, toddlers and littlies. “Baby whisperers”, we call them.
The connection is real
On check-in our nannies are there to meet families and kids are soon whisked away only to return excited and already bonded to their carers: the routine is tried, tested and has withstood the test of time. The connection between children and our nannies is authentic and often happens instantaneously. Many kids jump hurdles of development with us while also having the holiday of a lifetime. It’s not uncommon to see both nannies and little ones (OK, mums and dads too) crying on checkout and declaring they’re moving to Fiji forever. They’re happy tears born from a holiday filled with joy, memorable moments and true connection.
You can rest assured your littlies are in the safest of hands
All our nannies are vetted by character and history before joining JMC’s special team of carers. Our carers undergo regular health checks with a private doctor and receive careful, fastidious training in terms of hygiene, safety and early childhood learning. Parents can brief their assigned nanny about any specific needs while dietary restrictions are easily catered for. Parents are encouraged to include nannies in family activities outside of the Bula Club – offering an extra pair of hands to help you connect and have fun as a family.
Our nannies can follow routines for naps or take kids for quiet time on the beach. Most kids are so tired at the end of a fun filled day; they sleep like a baby.
Date night, every night
After children our put to bed our nannies can take over so you can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner beneath the stars to the strains of our three-piece band. Imagine being able to enjoy date night every night while on holiday?! Knowing your little ones are in the safest of hands is a priceless gift meaning the whole family can relax and enjoy a well-deserved holiday.
It’s just one of the reasons so many of our guests return again and again – you simply won’t find nannies as special as ours anywhere in the world. Trust us on this.
