About The Mindful Nanny Workshop

This course is for in-home caregivers (nannies, domestic helpers and grandparents), offering knowledge and practice to equip them with the skills to handle young children confidently.

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING...
"Our helper, Nuraini, greatly benefited from having attended the nanny training as she learned many practical strategies to support our your son in a more respectful way. She is better able to slow down, give him space and allow him to explore the world in his way." - Silva, mother of 1 year old Arthur
"I just wanted to say thanks so much for a fantastic course. My helper came back with a whole new perspective on childcare, play and discipline. ... She has even taken to gently correct Ellie's other caregivers (my parents) for using distraction. In all I am very pleased and would recommend this course to all my friends' helpers." - Jolene, mother of 1 year old Ellie
"Before the course, I only knew what I had to do but didn’t really know why. Now, after coming to this course, I understand why we do certain things when we take care of babies. I knew it in my mind, but now I know it also in my heart." - Anonymous
