Lesson One :  0-12months Milestones and Activites

  • The importance of and correct play for Children from 0-1 years
  • Developmental milestones 0-1 year
  • Fun games and ideas inside and outside that will help the children learn and grow

Safety Awareness (covered in lesson one)

In this module we cover:

  • The importance of their role as a nanny/housekeeper
  • How to communicate effectively with the parents
  • Understanding and following a routine in the workplace
  • Safety awareness – identifying the hazards around the house and creating a childproof home

We teach the nannies how to effectively manage their time between childcare and domestic work. They learn how to manage and prioritise their responsibilities as well understand how important it is to communicate to the parent. We teach the nannies about the potential hazards in and outside the home, when they are watching the children and when they are not. We encourage the nannies to fully understand how important it is to childproof the home and be hands on with your children.

Lesson Two : 1-4 Years Milestones and Activities

In this module we cover:

  • The importance of play for Children 1-4 years
  • Developmental milestones 1-4 years
  • Fun games and ideas inside and outside that will help the children learn
  • The importance of music and reading
  • How children learn through play by using their senses and muscles
  • Play dough Making
  • Paint Mixing
  • Painting activies

In these classes we discuss the importance of play and why young children need to be stimulated and not just put in front of the television. We explain different play station ideas that we recommend in all homes. This will include both indoor and outdoor play covering music, reading, art, play dough, ball play etc. During these sessions we will encourage the nannies to get involved in each activity and have a hands on experience of what we are teaching them to do with your children. Each Nanny will receive a manual explaining each activity as well as a time table to work around. We encourage the parents to read these manuals for fun family activities to do with the kids on weekends as well.

During our 1-4 year old class the nannies will also be taught how to mix paint to make different colours and get different consistencies for the different painting activities. They will also be taught how to make a basic play dough recipe to give you little ones hours of fun moulding and shaping at home.
