The Carer Academy provides quality training for Nannies

and allows parents to explore key aspects of childcare.






We wish to bring all who care for children within a home setting together, to learn from our speakers, and from each other’s experiences. One of the most enriching aspects of providing childcare within a family home is the vibrant, everyday exchanging of ideas and beliefs that happen between the the adults that are entrusted with the care of a child.

The format we have chosen is designed to allow working parents and carers to take part, by making the Modules affordable both in terms of time and money.

We will cover the basic elements of each topic during the sessions, and will provide reading lists and other materials: we wish for all to continue delving into the nuances of each theme both individually and through the continued exchange of resources and perspectives with other course participants.

COVID19 update: due to the risks involved in the context of the outbreak, we are suspending the scheduling of new modules for the time being. Please watch this space for news, we hope to be back to business as usual before the end of the summer!
