How do I become a Nanny?

While there’s no official Nanny University and you don’t need a fancy degree to become a nanny, let’s be real – experience is king! Have you spent time with kids nannying before? Babysitting? Volunteering with little rascals? Yup, that counts big time! But hey, it wouldn’t hurt to sprinkle some education into the mix. No need to hit the books for a Ph.D., but taking our online nanny courses can totally level up your game. A certificate in practical hands-on knowledge of how to manage multiple kids in sticky situations, first aid and safety will make you shine like a glittery unicorn in the nanny world!  With your Sittertrain Nanny certificate, love for kids, and a sprinkle of nanny know-how, you’re bound to be the Mary Poppins of modern times!
