Nanny Training

Designed by a Nanny, for all Nannies.

Hello lovely!

When I started Nannying in October 2009, I had just finished my A-Levels, moved to a new area and had no training or qualifications to my name. So, when I launched Freckles I wanted to provide both incredible training and a kick ass Tribe of Nannies.

We currently provide the following Nanny Training courses;

  • Baby Basics

  • Emotional Health

  • Family Cooking

  • Running a Home

  • Paediatric First Aid

The courses can currently be completed as a single day course, over a 3 day residential or over a 5 day residential.

Nanny training is available to any and all Nannies and aspiring nannies. Every course is tailored to those in the session and with small group sizes we make sure you get the most out of it.
