What is involved in becoming a first class nanny?

Here at PHS we have many opportunities to become a first class nanny.  

 

What is required when being a nanny?

  • Performing/helping in common household duties such as cooking & cleaning.
  • Caring for children, helping with their homework
  • Entertaining children, in ways which will benefit them
  • Consider children’s individual needs
  • Taking care and holding full responsibility for babies (this involves nappy changing, dressing, feeding, comforting, playing with them and making sure that they are safe).
  • Helping children improve on their learning skills (reading & writing)

What qualifications do you need?

Qualifications are not always essential; it depends on the family you work for. Some parents might want their nanny to have qualifications, if so a good one to have is an NVQ Level 2 in Children’s Care. Learning and Development. 

What is a Level 2 NVQ?

A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) Level 2 is a learning that involves the application of knowledge in varied work activities, taught in different contexts. You would work with others in a collaborative way in a group or a team. A level 2 NVQ is the equivalent of an A*-C.
