What is the Class Structure for the Professional Child Care Program?
This specialized Professional Nanny and Sitter training program is 100% online with 24/7 on-demand access to faculty-taught classes.
Each class is an on-demand video by our faculty and every class has a study guide that you download. You complete the study guide as you watch the course. After each course, there is a short quiz to test your understanding of the course material. The study guide and quiz prepare you for the multiple choice exam at the end of the program. The assignments and proficiency requirements (quizzes & exams) in addition to a comprehensive curriculum and college faculty are the foundation for the Nanny Institute to issue Certifications, not certificates of attendance.

Meet Our Amazing Faculty
As our culture advances, changes in etiquette and professional expectations make it challenging for nannies to navigate employment in their boss’s home. It’s a fine line between casual and unprofessional.
As a physician assistant, physical and mental health is very important to me. I have a passion for promoting a healthy childhood and wrote a children’s book series for healthy living and disease management.
