Residential Nanny Training

Designed by a Nanny, for Nannies.

Hello!

When I started Nannying in October 2009, I had just finished my A-Levels and had no training or qualifications to my name. I just kinda fell into it! I had sole charge of 4 children; 13, 11, 7 and 4 and my 7yo was severely disabled - she didn’t walk or talk and was like having a baby.

I wish there had been some accessible and fun training that I could have done and also a community of Nannies that I could have become a part of. There wasn’t and so fast forward to today and I’ve put together the Freckles Residential Nanny Training.

Our training is designed to both equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to support the children in your care, but also as an opportunity for you to make new friends, hang out with other Nannies and become part of something. Nannying is a traditionally solo industry and this is something I want to change. We are building a community of Nannies who are there to support each other, build you up on the days you’re down and laugh with you through it all.

Training covers; Emotional Health, Family Cooking and Paediatric First Aid and every course is tailored to those in the session. Early on in my Nannying career, one of my children was self harming and it changed my world for ever - I never want anyone to feel as helpless as I did.

12 months on from our first Residential , it’s so exciting to be able to offer training to Nannies external to Team Freckles.

I hope you love it all as much as I do and I can’t wait to welcome you to the beautiful house we hire in Salisbury for a 2-3 days of learning, laughs and friendship.

Emotional Health

We have partnered with the incredible Dr Maryhan to perfect our Emotional Health course which includes; an introduction to mental health whilst covering topics specific to children such as anxiety, attachment, confidence and resilience.

The course looks practically at what you can do for your child. It is tailored and specific. You also create and take away your very own toolkit - full of games, glitter bottles, ideas and equipment to implement with your children. 

Dr Maryhan is then always on hand for you throughout your time as a Nanny - and of course, as one of our trainees we’re here to support you too.

 

Family Cooking

For our Family Cooking course we have the wonderful Caroline Winstanley delivering the training. She is an incredible cook, ex food critic and former writer for the 'Tasty' section in The Times newspaper.

The course covers everything from basic nutrition and food hygiene, to light lunches, speedy suppers, birthday cakes and after school snacks.

 

Paediatric First Aid - 6 or 12 hour

We run a fully certified 6 hour course which can be tailored to any attendee requirements as it is delivered by our very own trainer, who we've worked with for the past 3 years. We offer both the 12 hour blended course (6 hour practical and 6 hours online) and the 6 hour practical course - both of which are included in the fee, so simply tell us which one you prefer.

For nursery workers and childminders the 12 hour course is essential but for nannies (including Ofsted registration) the 6 hour course is sufficient. Both certificates last for 3 years.
