Education & Childcare


Hire a private Governess from our exclusive Governess agency.

Often confused with a Nanny, the role of a Governess is distinct to that of other childcare roles.

A Governess is employed to lead educational activities, as opposed to overseeing your child’s daily routine in terms of eating, sleeping and cleaning. As such, they are focussed specifically on your child’s etiquette, education and development.

At Melissa PS, we understand the importance of finding the right person for your child’s needs and personality, but we also know the emphasis that must be placed on maintaining the utmost discretion. As a member of your household, a Governess is privy to your private affairs, with which they must be unequivocally trusted.

Role requirements:

  • Collaboration skills
  • Good time management
  • Curriculum & tutoring experience
  • The ability to teach specialist lessons such as musical instruments or a language
  • Manners, etiquette & social skills
  • Patience
  • Communication
  • Organisation
  • Discretion
  • Creativity
