Nannies / The Importance of Workshops and Conferences

Ongoing education in any field is important, and most industries offer conferences, workshops and trainings to those within it. Until recently, there weren’t a whole lot of educational opportunities available for nannies to choose from, but that’s changing in our evolving profession. There are now a variety of local and national conferences and trainings that nannies can choose to attend, depending on your needs. As with any field, it’s important that nannies keep up to date with their education and skills trainings, not only so that they can be on the top of the applicant pool, but also so they can provide quality care to the children in their hands.

Know the industry standards – By attending trainings you will be knowledgeable on what the latest trends, standards, news and best practices are in the nanny industry. When it’s time to renegotiate your contract or talk to your employers about a raise, you’ll be able to show them the facts on the latest standards and you will be able to back up what you are discussing.

Sessions on childcare – At conferences for nannies you’ll find a variety of topics dealing directly with childcare; some of it will be new, some you will already know, but all of it is valuable. The range of topics can vary from infant massage to bullying and from nutrition in children to keeping teens safe while using technology. There is something for everyone and every age group.

Professional development workshops – Learning how to create your own portfolio and performing an effective job search are just the beginning of what professional development sessions have to offer. Once you have portfolios and job searching under your hat you can move onto things such as transitioning to a household manager, asking for a raise and staying as the long-term nanny with a family. It’s important to remember that even though you’ve been a nanny for quite some time, there’s always something new to learn or to improve upon.
