Atlanta, GA, March 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Elite Metro Nannies celebrates National Nanny Training Day (April 16th, 2016) to recognize the needs of young children and to raise awareness of the positive correlation between nanny training and quality care. This national initiative is part of Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
On Saturday, April 16th over 1,500 nannies in more than 35 cities will gather in their local communities at training events designed to meet their unique needs. Elite Metro Nannies is proud to be the local sponsor for the Atlanta event.
While professional development is required is other childcare settings, the informal nature of nanny care often leads parents and caregivers to believe that ongoing training isn’t necessary for nannies. However early childhood researchers such as Dr. Laura Berk, retired Professor at Illinois State University Psychology Department, tell us a different story. Her research shows that child care providers become skilled professionals when hands-on childcare experience is combined with training and education.
Sue Downey, owner of Nannypalooza.com, says, “Many nannies are drawn to this work because they have natural skills. But when you combine those natural instincts with a solid knowledge of child development you will directly increase the quality of care for children. And top notch care is what every child needs and deserves.”
The Atlanta event will offer sessions on nanny taxes, encouraging play, and working with special needs children. We will also have a Q&A session featuring a panel of local nanny agency owners and professional nannies ready to answer all of your questions about landing a job in the industry. The training is open to all nannies throughout the community. This event will also offer caregivers the opportunity to network, share resources and be appreciated for the important work they do.

Crystal Crawford, the Founder of Elite Metro Nannies, LLC says, “We’re really excited to host this year’s National Nanny Training Day here in Atlanta.

Our training will tackle some of its unique challenges and celebrate its unique rewards. We guarantee that nannies will leave the training a more confident and competent caregiver.”
