Last month, over 1,000 nannies across the country participated in National Nanny Training Day organized by Nanny Biz Reviews. In 27 major cities, these dedicated child care providers learned, among other things, how to land their dream jobs, add a little music to their lives, manage homework without tears and frowns (well, maybe a few frowns are okay), solve sleep and potty problems, and instill some Zen into their charges’ daily lives.
“In the Chicago area, we had more than 60 nannies attend our training day, a number that happily exceeded our expectations,” said Erin Krex, president of Northbrook, IL-based First Class Care, which spearheaded the Chicago event. “With the help of our fabulous sponsors and top-notch speakers, we were able to create a full-day workshop that accommodated not only our attendees’ busy schedules but their need for-and desire to-learn as much as they can about this important profession.”
What made the event especially gratifying, added Krex, were the bonds forged among people who’d never met before. “I’m particularly happy that the nannies were able to talk with one another,” said Krex. “It’s always helpful to trade war stories with other people in your profession.”
One impressed participant had this to say about the one-day training event: “Meeting other nannies and learning new perspectives on current issues and having fun made it a special day for me.”
Plans are already underway for next year’s National Nanny Training Day. “We’ve already started to put the 2013 program together, something we know will be even bigger and better,” said Krex.
