Polyglot Family — professional recruitment agency of linguistically savvy staff

Polyglot Family

is a professional recruitment agency of linguistically savvy staff.

We pride ourselves on our tailored approach to the family ecosystem and on our help in forging working and family relationships with nannies, governesses, tutors and mentors – all native speakers of target languages.

We don’t rely on luck – we believe in the programmed confluence of temperaments between tutor and child, which is achieved through our expert coordination and allocation of candidates. We supervise our tutors and tutees at all times when they are together and, when a solid bilingual foundation has been laid, we guide parents through the vast sea of education opportunities in both Switzerland and the UK.

Our Mission

We, Irina and Maria, the founders of Polyglot Family, are convinced that bilingualism is the best birthday present a parent could ever give their child. But the earlier this present is given, the better.

We ourselves mastered languages in adolescence thanks to studying abroad, and our own children have been exposed to multilingualism from the day they were born.

After all, language learning brings universal benefits to a child’s brain: it trains logical reasoning, it stimulates curiosity, and it develops analytical and critical thinking. In our children’s future, being multilingual will open doors to the world’s best universities and will provide enviable career opportunities.

Education abroad

Schools in England and Switzerland

School education in England and Switzerland is focused upon the development of the individual, whose personal achievements create prestige for the institution. We create preparatory programmes for entrance exams and select tutors with the right expertise, alongside undertaking the completion of all required documentation for school entry. If the family so desires, we continue to look after the child throughout their time at the school.

International Summer Camps

Spending your holidays in an international camp is a fantastic way to make friends from all across the globe, to learn about a different country in suitable way for excitable young kids (if there’s a day out, then it’ll be to Wembley Stadium), and to do what you love, whether it be football, tennis, computing or cooking. And all of this in a foreign language!
