How to become a professional nanny

Many families looking for a nanny to come into their family unit aren’t typically looking for someone with a college degree. However, most families require these potential nannies to be certified in CPR or first aid before starting their position, whether they’re a live in nanny or live out nanny. At the same time, others may wish to hire a nanny with extensive professional experience or education in the field.

Become the best nanny you can be with the help and training from some of the top schools across the UK. Offering you online and in-person training, you will soon be able to take on the responsibility of assisting a family in raising their child or children. You can start your journey to becoming a skilled nanny with either online training certifications or perhaps at one of the most prestigious nanny schools in the world.

Norland Colleges 

Norland College is the world’s most prestigious nanny training school, located in Bath, UK. The school is well-renowned for training nannies who support royals and high profile families. Studying at a BA degree level in Early Years Development and Learning (3 years) and diploma (+ 1 year), this curriculum covers extensive skills and knowledge. 

There are also some, what people might call, unconventional modules that have given these nannies the reputation of being ‘super nannies’. These modules include: security and self defence training by former military intelligence officers. It seems understandable that such modules would be included at Norland College, training nannies for royals and aristocrats’ children. Although this school is the most expensive place to learn, you will receive the best possible training and take your medal as a ‘super nanny’.
