Comprehensive Nanny Training Course

The Comprehensive Nanny Training Course comprises of 18 modules which we teach over 4 days for 6 hours per day. The nannies have homework and are encouraged to practice what they have learnt.  The ladies will also be divided into small groups each week, where they will participate in group class activities and discussions.  The nanny training modules are geared towards babies and young children.  The Comprehensive Nanny Training Course also includes 3 Housekeeping and Laundry Modules.  

The CPR and First Aid Modules are accredited by the American Heart Association as well as the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa. We cover modules on various illnesses and difficult situations like sleep or eating problems with toddlers and babies.  This is also an ideal course for nannies that want to further their knowledge in how to correctly play and stimulate your child to make sure they reach their milestones.

Your nanny will write a test on completion of her last training module at class.  After passing her test, she will receive her Nanny Corp Certificate with a colored diploma sticker according to her test results.

All Modules have a practical element or group activity and your nanny will have to complete homework assignments each week. 

We take into account that most of the nannies are second language learners so therefore our content material is taught in a practical, fun and interactive manner working as a group. The nannies leave our nanny training courses feeling empowered in their new knowledge. It is amazing to see how their learning positively affects their role at work and in their own community.
