What Training Should a Nanny Have?

Training for Nannies

While there may be no formal training required to become a nanny, taking specialized child care training courses will make a nanny a more professional and knowledgeable caregiver. Every child is different and when selecting the best Nanny for your home, specialized classes according to the needs of your child(ren) are important and should be added as a qualifier for your interview process. For example, if your child loves music or is musically inclined, does your potential Nanny candidate have the education and skill to assist in your child’s passion?

Necessary Training:

  • CPR and First Aid
  • Water Safety Certification
  • Infant Care Classes & Certification if taking care of newborns
  • Drivers’ License

Some Optional Training:

  • Nutrition and Cooking
  • Fitness Education
  • Foreign Language Skills
  • Positive Discipline Training
