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.
