Residential Nanny Training

Designed by a Nanny, for Nannies.


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 training that I could have done and a community of Nannies that I could have joined. There wasn’t and so fast forward to today and here we are. To date we’ve trained 68 amazing individuals as Kaya Nannies; 40 who have completed the residential weekend and 28 who have done standalone courses.

Training covers; Baby Basics, 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 hope you love as much as I do and I can’t wait to meet you!
