Wants to be a nanny

hi I'm new here!
I'm not currently a nanny, but I'm hoping to be in the near future! I'm looking for some kind of nanny school/training program to give me that extra "umph' and set me apart. I have plenty of childcare/babysitting experience, I just want to take it one step further. any tips and advice would be appreciated!! :)

Depending on where you live. Maybe attending Early Childhood Classes at your local college. CPR and First Aid a must- if you haven't already.

Don't waste your money on a nanny school. Agree with anon above- CPR and some early childhood education are definite pluses. Just continue to get actual experience. As a mom, I wouldn't hire someone just because they went to a nanny school. I actually know someone who did that, and she never got a job as a nanny. Moms are looking for someone who knows what they're doing, not someone who just learned about it.

Take classes but also, start as a mothers helper. You'll get the feel for what nannying is. I got experience because the family I was babysitting for liked me so much.

I disagree about not needing education from a nanny school. It is extremely valuable to learn from other professional nannies and their experiences, which really open your eyes about the job. I went to a Nanny School in LA, plus Child Development classes, plus CPR etc. At a school you will learn about developmental and physical milestones, child psychology and lots of things you wont learn necessarily working on the field, like sleep training, how to talk and negotiate with parents, how to effectively communicate with parents and children. And also, you will meet more nannies and professionals of the filed. Good luck and enjoy! It is a beautiful career where you will get lots of rewards, and it you are good you can earn lots of money.. 4 years ago i had a salary of 75,000 usd a year and because i did all of the above.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
