A Career School Committed to Quality Childcare Training

The Nanny Institute’s nanny programs are based on the US Nanny Association National Standards, early childhood development post-secondary curriculums, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessments, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the US Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are no laws requiring nanny standards in the United States which is why the US Nanny Institute certifications are highly respected and valued as they demonstrate a commitment to quality childcare.

Find the Childcare Program That’s Right for You.

At the US Nanny Institute, our mission is to provide affordable online training to Nannies and Sitters as well as daycare staff who earn childcare certifications by completing a specialized curriculum taught by college faculty. The US Nanny Institute offers online and in-person training. With 7 programs to choose from, you can invest the right amount of time and tuition into the program that best fits your career goals.

I’ve been a nanny for over five years and I learned so much more than I expected. In each program, I gained new skills and used them right away with the children in my care. The faculty are college professors who really understand childcare. I am now earning more to help pay for graduate school.

I talk about the importance of education to the children in my care so it’s important that I invest in nanny and childcare training. I learned about nutrition, fitness, special education, child development, and so much more. The Professional Childcare program has made me a better nanny.

I worked as a live-in nanny and want to earn more with another long term position. My US Nanny Institute Certification makes my application stand out from the others.

- Evelyn

As a mom who’s employed 2 nannies over 6 years, it was hard to find good candidates. I look for the US Nanny Institute Certification because it gives me confidence that the nannies have the right training to care for my kids.

- Lisa

I love teaching children about music and jumped at the chance to share my best tips and songs in a music course. Music is fun and nannies have an opportunity to delight and educate the children in their care.
