Nanny Rights and Responsibilities

FACT: Training and education of caregivers is one of the most important factors associated with the quality of the child care they provide. This is especially true of caregivers who are not associated with a professional organization like NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children).

Take a minute to really think about that. It’s pretty amazing that investing a couple of hours a few times each year can have such a powerful effect on how well a nanny does her job. It’s also pretty amazing, in a shameful way, that we as an industry haven’t demanded that basic and ongoing training be a requirement for working as a nanny. We’re the only segment of the greater childcare industry that hasn’t stepped up and set standards for our caregivers.

The ongoing conversation about domestic workers rights keeps bringing me back to the idea that yes, we have rights but we also have responsibilities. We should expect fair and legal treatment from employers but they should expect us to put in the time and effort it takes to be a quality provider. I can almost hear the chorus of “You can’t teach a person to love a child!” out there. And of course that’s true. But we’re not getting paid to love a child. We’re getting paid to provide quality childcare. And yes, there is a difference. Ask any nanny who’s left a job and had to explain to a child that although she won’t be taking care of her anymore, she will love her forever.

It a natural instinct of a person to love a child whom she takes care of! But nannies responsibility is not restricted to taking care of a child but also to help the new mother in her household chores, and other home organizing activities. The nannies responsibility changes with the age of a child. Bitcoin Society App tells you more about a nannies responsibility.

So while we’re out there fighting for our rights, let’s start accepting our responsibilities. Agencies, start requiring the nannies you place to have a solid childcare knowledge foundation and start offering and requiring regular ongoing training. Online sites, start educating parents that training is a critical part of the qualifications puzzle and start offering training opportunities. Organizations, both nanny and domestic worker, start offering trainings in formats that support and help your particular members. And please don’t use language, education level, time, or cost as a reason not to do it. In every state across the country caregivers working in other settings, from every ethnic background, with a wide variety of written and verbal skills, who are busy and can’t afford a whole lot, are taking training. If they can do it, we can too. Parents, start hiring nannies that have passed a basic childcare training course and are committed to continuing education. Then invest $100 or $150 a year to pay for it. Nannies, get trained. Attend classes through your local nanny agency, resource and referral agency, community college, favorite online site, conference, whatever. Just do it. We can’t keep proclaiming we’re committed to children or demanding to be viewed as professionals or raging against unfair treatment if we’re not willing to step up and do our part.

Remember training doesn’t have to be at a college level or take months to complete or be really expensive. Two classes on a Saturday morning with a fun and engaging trainer and other caregivers who really understand what’s it’s like to be a nanny can make a big difference.

To support this goal, I’m organizing a National Nanny Training Day. It will be an annual event on the last day (Saturday) of NAEYC’s Week of the Young Child. This year’s that’s April 28th, 2012. My goal is to get businesses, support groups and individuals to come together and plan a training event open to all in-home caregivers in their local communities or regional areas. By working together we’ll increase the visibility of the event, make new connections in our local areas and promote quality nanny care and the important role training plays in the big picture. This ties in perfectly with The Week of the Young Child’s purpose to “focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.” WOYC already draws national media attention so this a great event and organization to hitch our wagon to.

Don’t know about The Week of the Young Child? It’s is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early childhood education association, with nearly 80,000 members and a network of over 300 local, state, and regional Affiliates.

NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child is a time to plan how we – as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation – will better meet the needs of all young children and their families.

If you want to be involved with an event, please let me know. The official planning won’t start until after the first of the year but it REALLY helps when I know what cities are in. I’ve created a new facebook group and email list to get us connected.

As always, if you have any questions please email me. I’m excited about this new project and I think it can lead to some great things.

Please help me spread the word by sharing this posts with other that might be interested. Thanks!

Introducing the SPARK Awards for Excellence in Nanny Care

Last year while working on National Nanny Training Day, I was struck by how many amazing people we have in our industry and how little recognition they receive. I feel so lucky to work in a field where I’m surrounded by nannies who give their all to the kids they love and care for each and every day. Who personify lofty ideas like passion, commitment, creativity, life-long learning, devotion, professionalism and service. Who teach, support, play, encourage, hug, soothe, laugh, explore and love for a living. I think those nannies deserve recognition and appreciation (along with some great gifts!) so I’ve created the SPARK Award for Excellence in Nanny Care. Along with honoring the dedication and hard-work of nannies, the SPARK Award celebrates the diversity found in today’s nanny workforce and showcases what quality nanny care looks like in the real world.

So what criteria are nannies judged on? Of course the most important part of being an excellent nanny is providing excellent childcare so that’s at the top of the criteria list. In addition, there are characteristics that all successful nannies share and SPARK outlines those things. A nanny with SPARK:

has a Service-minded or “How can I help?” outlook.

acts in a Professional way.

has a positive Attitude about her job and her role as a nanny.

is Resourceful and knows where to go for information, ideas and support.

is Knowledgeable and understands how to foster a child’s healthy development.

We all know one-size-doesn’t-fit-all in the nanny world so there are two award categories, Enthusiastic Newcomer and Seasoned Veteran. The Enthusiastic Newcomer is for caregivers who’ve worked as a nanny for 2 or more years. The Seasoned Veteran is for nannies who’ve been doing it for 10 plus years.

Anyone can nominate a nanny and you can nominate as many nannies as you want. (I know I couldn’t choose just one!) All you have to do is answer a few quick questions to get the ball rolling. Just click here to nominate someone right now.

Nominees will complete a short online application, submit reference letters and a 2 to 10 minute video. The process is quick, easy and painless. OK, for those of you like me that don’t like being on camera it might be a little painful but you can do it!

The winners will be chosen through a combination of online voting and a selection committee. Yep, your vote helps pick the winners. You’ll have the chance to watch each nominee’s video and vote for your favorite nanny through the Nanny Biz Reviews’ facebook page. Are you already trying to figure out how you’ll choose just one nanny? Don’t worry. You get 5 votes.

At the close of the voting period, the two nominees in each category with the most votes will become finalists. The selection committee will choose a third “wild card” finalist in each category.

The vote tally for each nominee will be converted into a score which will count for 50% of the nominee’s total score. Each member of the selection committee will score each nominee and those committee scores will count for the other 50% of the nominee’s total score. The nominee with the highest total score in each category will be the winner.

Whew! That’s a lot of math but the winners will really represent the diversity and the collective voice of the nanny community.

The winners of the 2013 SPARK Awards for Excellence In Nanny Care will be honored at their local National Nanny Training Day event on Saturday, April 20th, 2013. Each SPARK Award winner will receive a gift package including a cash prize. I’ll be stalking businesses, ahem…I mean graciously asking businesses over the next several months for prize contributions so I can’t tell you exactly what the prizes will be right now. But I promise the winners will be happy and the rest of us will be jealous.

Like most other things, this project wouldn’t be able to happen without a sponsor. Select APNA agencies have generously come together to be the collective sponsor. They see the great work nannies do every day and are excited about being part of the SPARK Awards. They were my first (and only!) sponsorship call because their commitment to exceptional client service and quality nanny care is the perfect companion to the mission of the SPARK Awards. You’ll be hearing more about each agency throughout the year but take a look at the complete list here.

For all the details on the SPARK Award, please visit Nanny Biz Reviews. I’ll need your help to spread the word and make the dream of honoring nannies in a real way becomes a reality.

Nannypalooza Extended Session Distinguishing Yourself As A Childcare Professional How To Share Your Expertise In The Interview And On The Job Sunday, October 14th from 1 to 4 PM

In our society, nannies aren’t automatically given the title of childcare professional. While most parents trust their nanny to do a great job, they don’t usually recognize her as the expert she is. Instead, parents turn to other sources. They hire a baby whisperer to help them get their 10 month old to sleep through the night. They ask the preschool teacher how to encourage their 4 year old to be responsible with his toys. They enroll their second grader in a class focused on effective study skills. All the while not recognizing that their nanny has the experience, training and know-how to guide them through those and so many other challenges.

If those scenarios sound way too familiar to you and you want to learn how to confidently talk about your ideas, make suggestions and share resources in a way that parents positively respond to, then this extended session is for you.

In this training you’ll learn a step-by-step process that will help you concretely DEFINE your vision, approach and expertise; RENFORCE your role as a childcare professional and successfully COMMUNICATE your ideas during the interview process and within the employment relationship.

We’ll focus on three key actions.

DEFINE Using a user-friendly framework, you’ll translate your caregiving philosophy, values and vision into a nanny mission statement. This clear, concise, heartfelt statement is the perfect tool to share your commitment and expertise during your job search and throughout your career.

RENFORCE You’ll learn how to weave key words, phrases and ideas into a variety of communicate avenues – your portfolio, face-to-face interviews, daily check-ins, family meetings and performance reviews – to highlight your real world know-how. This subtle yet powerful strategy makes (and keeps!) employers aware of all that you bring to the table.

COMMUNICATE You’ll learn how to weigh in as an expert in a non-confrontational, conversational way that makes parents fall in love with you during the interview and creates a comfortable, collaborative relationship once you’re on the job.

Through a series of small and large group exercises you’ll observe and participate in real world scenarios and identify ways to integrate the information presented into your particular situation.

Whether you’re a first time nanny or you have years of experience under your belt, this interactive session will help you:

• clarify and articulate what you believe and who you are as a nanny in a way that parents can easily understand and relate to. This is the foundation of your professional identity and expertise and will help you land a great position and be successful over the long haul.

• understand the image you’re currently projecting and what messages you’re sending to employers.

• define (or redefine) yourself as a capable, competent, resourceful childcare professional.

You’ll also develop new, effective ways of communicating with your employers around child-related issues and challenges so they can better:

• appreciate the value of your experience and training.

• understand how the small things you do every day directly impact the healthy physical, social, emotional and educational development of their child.

• support you in your discipline decisions and approach.

• recognize your expertise in developing real world solutions to behavior issues and ages and stages challenges.

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to take your career to the next level. You’ll leave Nannypalooza with a tangible nanny mission statement, more confidence in your role as a childcare professional and a new skill set to help you comfortably share your expertise with your employers.

This extended session includes:

• pre-session assessment tools to help you identify and clarify your caregiving philosophy, values and vision for the nanny mission statement exercise.

• detailed handout outlining the session information.

• 2 follow-up webinars (dates and times voted on by attendees at the session) to give you the chance to ask follow-up questions, get conversation scripting ideas for your particular situation and practice and reinforce the skills learned in session.

• certification of completion.

Cost: $25 early bird registration, by Sunday, September 9th

$35 regular registration, between September 10th and Sunday, October 7th

$45 late registration, on site, cash or check only

The session price DOES NOT INCLUDE LUNCH. Because there’s only 30 minutes between the end of the conference and this extended session, I will be pre-ordering lunches off the menu at the hotel’s sports bar/restaurant so they’ll be ready for us at 12:30. They have a wide variety of reasonably priced sandwiches, wraps and specialty salads. I’ll take orders Saturday of the conference. I’m not opting for a hotel catered lunch because of the high cost. You also have the option of lunch on your own.

NOTE: You can pay using your Pay Pal account or your debit / credit card. To use your debit / credit card simply choose the box that says you don’t have a Pay Pal account.

National Nanny Training Day

Infant to Toddler- the Incredible Journey with Deborah Brown, hosted by Sue Downey

In this webinar we will discuss and offer solutions and ideas for that tough period of 10-15 months as babies become walkers. This part of life is full of transitions including changes in feeding, sleeping, communicating and more. As toddlers require a different approach than infants, it is important to address these changes and be armed with ideas to make the transitions as seamless as possible.

Let’s Talk About Money: How to Negotiate a Great Salary, Ask for a Raise and Other Tough Money Conversations with Lora Brawley

It’s scary to talk about money with employers. Especially when you’re trying to get them to hire you or give you a raise. But if you don’t talk about it, you’ll end up kicking yourself every payday because you’re earning less money than you need. Or than you’re worth.

If you want to make more money in your next job, or the one you have now, it’s time to learn how to talk about it. This webinar will teach you how to…

• push through your fear and bring up the subject in an interview or during a performance review

• confidently ask for what you want

• use a proven selling technique to show parents why you’re worth every penny

• overcome the “everyone else is cheaper” and “we can’t afford it” arguments

We’re proud members of Association of Premier Nanny Agencies and the American Payroll Association.
We specialize in handling all the financial, legal and HR aspects of household employment so busy families can be free of work and worry.

Our nannies are trained to take special care for a newborn from 0- 3 months old. The nannies are expert in feeding, breastfeeding, nutrition and other care practices; they are also expert in handling premature babies, sleep, and other issues. The nannies care is not only restricted to the babies they take care of new mothers as well. For the senior care click on the link The Bitcoin Code to get more information.
