HOW LONG IS THE NANNY TRAINING COURSE?
You can choose between a 2 day course or a 4 week course. The comprehensive nanny training course covers four modules. In the 2 day course we cover all four modules over 2 full days. The 4 week course is held one morning each week over 4 consecutive weeks. We cover a single module each week.
English is not my nannies first language?
We have a diverse group of nannies attending our workshops: Xhosa, Afrikaans, Malawian, Zimbabwean etc. so our courses are taught in English to accommodate the entire group. The nannies are usually second language English speakers and the workshop is designed to be taught practically in an interesting, fun manner so our nannies can understand what is being covered.
Should I DROP MY NANNY EVERY TIME?
We recommend that you drop your nanny off on the first day so that we can meet you and you can see where we are doing the training. Our training venues are situated near public transport and are on the taxi route so nannies can make their own way.
WHERE DO YOU OFFER THE NANNY TRAINING COURSE?
We have nanny training venues in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town. Please review our schedule for venue address and dates for the nanny training course available.
We are looking at expanding into different areas once we find the right nanny trainers to join our nanny agency. Please email us if you are interested in setting up a nanny training program in your area. Please review our area list here.
DOES MY DOMESTIC NANNY GET A CERTIFICATE?
Absolutely. Your nanny receives a certified Super Nanny certificate upon successful completion of the course. The first aid and CPR component is recognized by the Resuscitation Council of South Africa and American Heart Association. This nanny training certificate is well recognised and will assist them with future job employment.
ARE YOUR NANNY TRAINERS QUALIFIED?
All our nanny trainers have a facilitation or teaching qualification or are first aid instructors under the Resuscitation Council of SA. All Super Nanny trainers have to have some type of teacher or training background.
DOES MY NANNY HAVE TO TAKE AN EXAM OR DO HOMEWORK?
Yes there is homework and a skills evaluation test. The classes are tailored so that the nannies have a chance to put into practice what they have learned that week and time to complete their homework. We are in contact via email with the employers on a weekly basis during the nanny training workshops so that they have a clear understanding of what content we have covered. The employer will be able to understand how their nanny is doing on the course when they review their homework and will be able to see what input is required by them.
IS YOUR NANNY TRAINING SETA ACCREDITED?
No, our nanny training courses are not SETA accredited.
Our nanny training manual is dynamic and is updated yearly by a team of experts that include an OT, two midwives, two pre-primary school teachers and a trained first aid facilitator. Super Nannies is endorsed by the Polkaspot early intervention centre (http://www.polkaspot.co.za).
Our first aid content is endorsed by the American Heart Association and Resuscitation of SA. Super Nannies prefers to have this flexibility than the rigid outcome process of SETA. SETA works best for big educational institutes who have to work with in a standard quality framework. Corporates can benefit from SETA with the rebate incentive program by sending their employers on SETA courses. Our market is not corporate companies but domestic nannies in a home environment so this module does not accommodate us.
As a small company, Super Nannies can maintain our standard of training and quality of content regularly with the team of experts at hand. We review our nanny training manuals annually and all our trainers do come either with a teaching or first aid instructor background.
