Nanny Courses

A Nanny cares for young children and is usually based in the children’s home. Nannies might help parents to care for their children or look after children while their parents are at work. You might assist with their daily routine, including feeding, bathing and toileting. You might organise activities for the children in your care or take them out into the community. Your role might also involve basic household chores.

A Nanny needs to be flexible and able to keep up with the demands of a busy family. If you enjoy working with young children, this could be a great career for you. You’ll need to be patient and able to follow instructions from parents. You should be a good communicator and it’s important that you are responsible and reliable.
