FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Over 1,000 Nannies Gather in Local Communities For Training That Promotes Quality Care
March 16, 2012 – Nannies & Housekeepers USA – Las Vegas celebrates National Nanny Training Day (April 28th, 2012) to recognize the needs of young children and to raise awareness of the positive correlation between nanny training and quality care. This national initiative is part of Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. NAEYC is an early childhood education association of almost 90,000 members and a network of more than 300 local, state, and regional affiliates.
On Saturday, April 28th over 1,000 nannies in more than 30 cities will gather in their local communities at training events designed to meet their unique needs. Nannies & Housekeepers is proud to be the local sponsor for the Las Vegas event.
While professional development is required is other childcare settings, the informal nature of nanny care often leads parents and caregivers to believe that ongoing training isn’t necessary for nannies. However early childhood researchers such as Dr. Laura Berk, retired Professor at Illinois State University Psychology Department, tell us a different story. Her research shows that child care providers become skilled professionals when hands-on childcare experience is combined with training and education.
Lora Brawley, owner of Nanny Biz Reviews, says, “Of course a great nanny must have a loving heart and nurturing personality. But it’s just as important that she have a working knowledge of how a child develops physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually and knows developmentally appropriate ways to create a safe, engaging environment where kids can thrive.”
The Las Vegas event will offers sessions on How to Raise Healthy Children, The Impact of Music & Reading, Love ‘N Logic and the importance of love, security and discipline. Nanny Training Las Vegas is open to nannies throughout the community. This event will also offer caregivers the opportunity to network, share resources and be appreciated for the important work they do.
Lexy Capp, Owner & Founder of Nannies & Housekeepers says, “We’re really excited to offer the amazing nannies we work training tailored to the private home environment. Working as a nanny is different than working in any other kind of childcare job. Our training will tackle some of its unique challenges and celebrate its unique rewards.”
National Nanny Training Day is a national initiative sponsored by Nanny Biz Reviews, a site offering free user reviews and up-to-date profiles of nanny-related businesses plus expert advice and practical tips on a successful search, effective screening, important hiring issues, and a long-term nanny/family relationship.
