THE NEW ZEALAND SUPER NANNY
#1 Best Selling Author & Nanny
& Parent Coach
Jessie Buttons, also known as The New Zealand Super Nanny, is a Teacher, Speaker and Behaviour Consultant. She has an amazing ability to inspire and coach parents, helping them to come to a new level of understanding.
Jessie has the experience and skills to guide parents to the solutions they need to make real changes that create lasting success.
Jessie trained and worked as a pre-school teacher, then traveled the world for many years working as a nanny for high-profile families.
Positioned as the nanny to many children of different ages, cultures and personalities, she witnessed a diverse range of parenting practices and daily behavioural challenges. Her toolbox of strategies grew.
Before returning home to New Zealand, Jessie spent three years in Sydney, managing a Montessori Pre-school, where the framework for learning is child-led. That is, children have the freedom to learn and explore in their own way, motivated by their individual preferences.
This confirmed her ideas that children are happier and learn faster when they are in an environment that suits their nature.
After returning to New Zealand, and constantly witnessing parents who were struggling with their children’s behaviour, Jessie was inspired to make a change.
She began consulting with families and researching further into why children behave the way they do, resulting in this easy to read book about the four different Natures of Children, and how best to support them.
