Schools offer courses to give students opportunities to learn about a particular topic in greater detail. Some courses can lead students to improve their career or job opportunities in a fairly short length of time, while others are a starting point for a longer educational pursuit.

What is a course in nanny and au pair training? As they say, children don’t come with an instruction manual, but those who care for them can benefit from professional instruction. Courses in nanny and au pair training offer in-depth knowledge into childcare. Students learn about the importance of safety as they train in CPR or water safety and how to identify signs of illness. They also learn the value of establishing routines and how to work in partnership with parents.

Beyond practical abilities like cooking and cleaning, trained nannies and au pairs learn important life-saving skills that can be used anywhere. Child and time management are also tools that fit in a nanny’s belt. And one of the biggest skills is that of multi-tasking – doing all the above – at the same time.

Costs for courses vary, as some courses are offered online and others are part of a broader placement service. There are qualified institutions worldwide that offer such courses. Students should consider the locations and opportunities available to determine the best financial fit.

For those who discover that they love working with children, becoming a nanny or au pair can be rewarding and have great side benefits. Many au pair opportunities include a cultural exchange, which gives them the opportunity to see different countries, experience the lifestyle and become fluent in a foreign language. This can be a good launching pad for careers in language teaching, childcare or early elementary education.

Many nanny and au pair training courses are available online with flexible hours. Other institutions offer intense training during a weekend of coursework. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
