Nannies, do you want to stand out from the crowd?

The cost of sending your child to a nursery and having part-time child care is rising. It has been estimated that on average £116.77 is spent in Britain per week per child. Therefore more families are searching for other options that are hopefully more affordable.

Nannies, Home Childcarers and Au pairs, are becoming more popular, as children from the same family can all be looked after, instead of parents needing to pay for each child seperately. Therefore you need to make sure that you are up-to-date with all your knowledge and make sure that you have a level-2 child safeguarding certificate, and an up-to-date DBS check. As well as this you may want a food hygiene training certificate. (If you do not have a food hygiene certificate, take our online course today). However, having all these necessary requirements is not enough these days.

Parents no longer want the simple necessities when it comes to childcare for their children. As today there are many more dangers etc. that their children could run into innocently and therefore parents want more security when leaving their children with nannies. As a result of this, it is great to have an up-to-date portfolio with your most recent training certificates. There are many different courses and areas that you can train in.

If you wish to stand out from the crowd of nannies, you need to have more than a DBS and first aid training certificate. There are many different courses you can take, and Harmony at Home can offer many of them to you. Here is a list of extra courses you can take:

  • Child protection training
  • Food hygiene training
  • EYFS training
  • Lone worker training
  • E-safety training
  • FGM training, this training is important as it is the law to report all cases. Therefore every qualified nanny or child carer needs to know the signs and what action to take should you suspect someone is at risk.

These are just a few of the many courses you can take to further your knowledge. At Harmony at Home we offer these courses. If you would like to take one of our courses follow the link below, and start standing out from the crowd.
