A true nanny is more than a babysitter. Nannies are expected to participate in the social, emotional and intellectual development of their charges, and will work with the child(ren) on such areas as language development, school readiness skills, toilet learning, social manners and much more. You do not simply play all day; you use play to extend the child’s learning by creating a safe, positive learning environment individualized to the meet the child’s needs. The children’s day will not simply consist of random activities. Nannies are trained to provide a carefully planned program of activities that help children to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.
The Professional Nanny Career Diploma focuses on teaching:
Sullivan has been preparing educated professional nannies since 1988 and places them nationwide. Sullivan is a member of the International Nanny Association and their faculty is actively involved by presenting at annual conferences, participating on the board of directors, and advocating for nannies in the early childhood education career field.
