You would be surprised at the salary potential for a trained nanny. If you like taking care of children and you'd like to make a career of it, you should consider training to be a nanny.
A nanny is a full or part time position that involves caring for the household and children of the hiring family. You will be expected to provide a positive role model for the children and manage the care of the home, from cooking to cleaning. Your patience will be tested at times, but you will find the experience very rewarding.
Advancement in your career as a nanny will come when your salary and level of responsibility increases. For this to happen, you will need to increase your experience and build a solid list of references that will vouch for your abilities. Once you have achieved this goal, you will find your salary will increase accordingly.
Being a nanny comes with a great deal of responsibilities. Your day will start out with various chores to get the home in order. Then you might pick the kids up from school and get them home to do their homework. If you are a nanny for small children, you will have to feed the little tykes, change their diapers, and put them down for naps. Your day will end when the parents come home and relieve you of your duties.
Education and Training
Training to become a nanny comes with sheer experience earned on the job. There are classes available in child development that can help you in your career and make you a more desirable employee as well. It?s a good idea to take infant and child CPR classes as well. The only thing you truly need to begin your career is a desire to care for children. If you have this desire, begin by taking smaller jobs with fewer hours until you feel comfortable with taking on a larger job.
