Nurturing Nannies training modules provide tools and essential information to bring you success in your professional nanny career. At Nurturing Nannies we feel that in order to be a true, professional nanny you must have these three key personality traits;
- The first is a deep abiding love for children. It must be a passion and joy for you to watch them grow and nurture their minds and bodies. Deciding to be a nanny should never be a decision you make based on money. It must be a decision made because your heart loves children.
- Second, you must have the ability to be patient. Being a nanny is a bit like being a gardener. You must realize that it takes patience, care and attention for a seed to grow.
- The third key ingredient is a commitment to always continue learning. Just like any other professional career, in order to succeed, you must commit to ongoing education and expansion of your knowledge.
As childcare professionals with over 30 years of experience, we would like to offer you ongoing education & tutorials. These will range from short videos to downloadable PDF classes that can be purchased for a small fee. We will be updating this material frequently. Some information may only be available for limited time periods so be sure to download the ones that interest you as they become available. We offer the option of a nanny training module test with a certificate for your nanny portfolio with every class.
