What makes a great nanny?
Every parent wants their child to have a secure, responsive, and trusting caregiver – one who provides a physically safe, emotionally nurturing, and cognitively challenging environment for their child. During the course of a day with infants and toddlers, nannies switch between two roles:
1) “Wanting something:” Diapering, dressing, and feeding infants and toddlers with respect and to nurture the positive attachment and relationship between caregiver and child
2) "Wanting nothing:” Providing a safe and cognitively challenging environment for play and independent exploration alone or with other children
Nannies will learn to observe the children in their care while implementing the RIE® educaring approach. Parents will feel confident that their children are receiving the benefits of Magda Gerber's respectful care, which creates a strong foundation for a child’s sense of self.
Classes will be taught in the Battery Park neighborhood. There are four (4) sessions over the course of five weeks on the following dates and times:
- Friday, Nov. 4th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm
- Friday, Nov. 11th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm
- Friday, Nov 18th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm
- Friday, Dec 2nd from 5:00 to 8:00 pm
This course will require the reading, "Elevating Childcare" by Janet Lansbury. However, the course is primary taught through experiential activities, discussion, lecture, and video. Enrollment capacity is 15 caregivers. Se habla Español -- Spanish speakers encouraged to apply.
