How we teach our nanny training courses?

Our experience comes through in the methodology we use to teach the nannies. Our trainers are either qualified teachers or facilitators. We take into account most of them are second languages learners so our content material is taught in a practical manner engaging group work. It is fun and interactive. The nannies leave our course feeling empowered in their new knowledge. It is amazing to see their learning positively affect their role at work and in their own community.

Why our nanny training course is credible:

Our nanny training manual is regularly updated with the guidance experts in the field of childcare and child education. Our group of experts comprise of two midwives, 2 pre-primary school teachers, an OT specialist and the input of mothers and more than 7 years of nanny training experience.

The First aid course training material used for the CPR/choking component of the course is in accordance with the requirements of The American Heart Association and with the Resuscitation Council of South Africa

Our play and stimulation module is endorsed by the Polkaspot Early Intervention Learning Centre. Working with an occupational therapist, we want to make sure that everything we teach is practical and current, while keeping it fresh and simple so your domestic worker or nanny understands the content, despite any language barriers.
