Stella Reid, known for her no-nonsense approach to childcare and family management as seen on hit reality show Nanny 911, and International Nanny Association Nanny of the Year award recipient, editor in chief of eNannySource.com, and author of Nanny to the Rescue! Michelle LaRowe, have teamed up to bring US based nannies access to high-quality, CACHE endorsed nanny training.
“For the first time, US nannies now have easy access to the same type of high quality training that nannies in the UK receive and are respected for. Nannies need to invest in themselves to be the best that they can be, and I am proud to have brought them this groundbreaking opportunity” said Reid.
Established in 1945, CACHE was created by the UK Ministry of Health under the name of National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB). This board set the syllabus for the first national nanny examination which took place in 1947. In 1994, NNEB merged with the Council for Early Years Awards to form CACHE, which has endorsed the programs Reid and LaRowe have developed.
“The first nanny course to be endorsed in the US by CACHE was The Nanny Stella Professional Nanny Program, which I developed and launched earlier this year,” said Reid. “This three-part program is designed to support learners through their journey from hoping to work with children to becoming a fully- fledged practitioner.”
Recognizing the need for an entry-level course that would provide nannies or nannies to be with a solid overview of best practices, industry information and current childcare standards, Reid collaborated with long-time friend and colleague, Michelle LaRowe, who serves as lead educator at NannyTraining.com. “Michelle has developed a high-quality, comprehensive nanny training program that perfectly complements the course I have developed. As a CACHE Approved Learning Center, it made perfect sense to endorse and offer her course as a CACHE Endorsed Learning Program.”
And the pair plans to continue to expand their offerings. “It’s our vision to expand access to high quality nanny education to caregiver across the globe” said LaRowe. “We’ve recently signed a licensing deal in Dubai and are working on one in Switzerland. There is a recognized need for high quality, affordable and easily accessible nanny training across the globe and we plan on meeting that need.”
