Over 1,500 Nannies Gather in Local Communities For Training That Promotes Quality Care
March, 2017 – Windsor House Nannies celebrates National Nanny Training Day (April 29th, 2017) to recognize the needs of young children and to raise awareness of the importance of nanny training and it’s effect on quality care. This national initiative is part of Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. NAEYC is the leading early childhood education association of almost 90,000 members and a network of more than 300 local, state, and regional affiliates.
On Saturday, April 29th over 1,500 nannies in more than 35 cities as well as a few events overseas, will gather in their local communities at training events designed to meet their unique needs. Windsor House Nannies is proud to be the local sponsor for the Austin event.
While professional development is required is other childcare settings, the informal nature of nanny care often leads parents and caregivers to believe that ongoing training isn’t necessary for nannies. However early childhood researchers such as Dr. Laura Berk, retired Professor at Illinois State University Psychology Department, tell us a different story. Her research shows that child care providers become skilled professionals when hands-on childcare experience is combined with training and education.
The Austin event will offers sessions on SIDS and shaken baby syndrome, child nutrition, potty training, the importance of baby sign language, nanny professionalism, car seat safety and early childhood development and is open to nannies throughout the community. This event will also offer caregivers the opportunity to network, share resources and be appreciated for the important work they do.
