National Nanny Training Day 2016

TCRStaffOn Saturday, April 16th over 50 Bay Area professional Nannies joined the Town + Country Nanny Teams for continuing education and training at the Foster City Recreation Center. Our T+C seminar was part of National Nanny Training Day and held during the nationally celebrated “Week of the Young Child.” This year’s National Nanny Training included an estimated 1,150 nannies gathered at 32 events across 23 states. All of those in attendance came together not only as Nannies, but also as caring individuals each resolved to be a positive influence in a child’s life.

NNTD1At our Town + Country event, three speakers addressed relevant Nanny themes, including a lively session on “Reading with Your Charges” by Marsi O’Malley-Riley, Youth Services Librarian at the Belmont Library. After lunch in Leo J. Ryan park, two Town + Country Placement Counselors, Amy Horning and Tess Kotch, presented the second seminar, “Using Technology with Your Employer and Charges” which reviewed ways for communicating with your employer throughout the course of the day. Michelle Fleming, who is a Town + Country placed Nanny, gave suggestions on how to get through the “Dinner Time Crunch.” We the wrapped up with a raffle where we gve away items that were generously donated by our sponsors.

We had fabulous day filled with laughter, networking, raffles … and of course, learning! We are grateful so many Nannies spent their day with us and we look forward to our National Nanny Training event in 2017!
