School has already started for a few kids in the nation and is about to start for others. Nannies and au pairs are crucial in helping children do school work.
Studies by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) show that the defining factor in having academically successful children of parents that work outside the home is the household help that they hire.
The NAS studies show that families that hire great childcare providers are in a stronger position to have children that are successful in school.
Children of working parents that do not have the support of homework helpers are less likely to achieve as well in school.
Therefore, helping children with homework is one of the most important responsibilities for in-home childcare providers.
Doing homework helps caregivers identify problems or difficulties students are having learning. Homework is an opportunity for children to review what they have learned and prepare for the next day's class. Homework helps teach students to use resources, manage their time, meet deadlines, and become more independent.
While helping children with homework nannies and au pairs can help children develop a love of learning, help encourage self-discipline, and ultimately help children to be successful in school.
Doing homework is also an opportunity for children to gain self confidence and good self-esteem.
