Career Skills for Nannies

There is more to being a nanny than childcare. It can be hard to know what rate to ask for, how to draw up a contract, and how to deal with issues that may arise with your employers in a professional way.


Learn business skills from two successful career nannies, Kristen Ring and Christina Vlinder, in this half-day workshop. There will be ample time for questions and one-on-one advice. There will be ample time for questions and one-on-one advice.

"I would like to make the people who work with infants the most honorable and best paid--not overpaid, because it shouldn't be done by people who do it only for the money. Educaring should be done by very capable people who also make a decent living. That's what I would wish for the future.


"We can make it happen. It won't happen in weeks or even in months. The politicians will not make it happen. We have to do it. We have to present ourselves like professional people who do a most important job, which we do. Slowly, not in my time but in yours, this may have results. Keep fighting for it."
