Working as a nanny is a fun and rewarding job. In fact, more and more people with experience in childcare are finding that being a nanny is a great career. Nanny jobs allow skilled social workers, teachers, daycare providers and nurses the same thing: the opportunity to help children.
As a nanny you are with children everyday in their home. You are able to provide a loving and stable environment for kids. Childcare experts and parents agree that this type of environment is beneficial for kids. Being a nanny allows you the opportunity to spend time with a child everyday. You watch them grow and develop. You will be there to see a child sit up for the first time, you will be there when they are learning to crawl, then walk and run.
A nanny also has the opportunity to teach kids. You are one of the child’s first teachers. Everyday nannies are singing the ABC song, counting out the number of swings at the playground, and talking about what color the flowers are in the garden. Watching a child learn is very rewarding. Along with teaching, nannies are coloring, cutting, gluing and stamping fun art projects and gifts for mom and dad.
Being a nanny is all about taking care of children while providing support for the family. It is a fun and challenging career for anyone with childcare experience.

National Nanny Training Day was a big success. We loved being a part of an event that showed appreciation to nannies across the nation.
A big part of NNTD was also getting to meet and talk to other nannies. TLC For Kids has a Meetup group and we want to invite you to join us. The group is designed to help nannies connect with other nannies and show support for each other. Every nanny needs a place where they can learn and grow so join us!
Joining the TLC For Kids Meetup group is easy. Just hop over to the Meetup page, register (it’s free) and come play with us!
Can’t wait to see you at the next event!
January is here. All the hustle and bustle of celebrating the holidays is over. What now?
Tradition has it that you make a resolution for the year. Something you want to change or improve for this year. Maybe you want make a positive impact in your life or the life of someone you love. We’ve gathered some nice resolutions (I prefer to call them goals) for you.
1. Are you thinking about “Going Green” this year and reducing your carbon footprint? Here is a website with 10 helpful environmentally friendly resolutions.
2. Do you want to do a better job of capturing your kids great moments? Why not try a memory jar? Write down some of the funny things your kids say and place them in a jar. On a bad day you can pull out a funny quote for a quick smile. Here is one mom’s blog about her Memory Jar.
3. Want to be a more organized nanny? We shared this tip a few months ago from a professional nanny. I love the idea of creating your own ‘Nanny Binder.’
