Over 2,000 Nannies Gather in Local Communities for Training That Promotes Quality Care
Tucson, Arizona –April 2, 2013- News stories like the murders of two children in NYC last year by their nanny have brought the issue of safety and quality care in the private child care industry to the forefront of parent’s minds. Trusting Connections, Tucson’s premier nanny agency recently spoke out on the issue by saying that despite these and other headlining tragedies, efforts are being made to professionalize the nanny industry, which is largely unregulated. “Currently anyone can call themselves a nanny,” argues Rosalind Prather, co-owner of Trusting Connections Nanny Agency. She continues, “We are committed to raising awareness about the dangers parents face when finding child care providers online and improving the overall level of quality of private child care in our community.”
As part of this effort, the Tucson based full-service nanny agency has chosen to participate in National Nanny Training Day, a day that child care agencies all over the U.S. and Canada are planning events for as a way to increase participants’ child care knowledge and skills. On Saturday, April 20, over 2,000 nannies in more than 40 cities will gather in their local communities at training events designed to meet their unique needs. Trusting Connections is proud to be the local sponsor for the Tucson event in the hopes that it will raise awareness of the positive correlation between nanny training and quality care. The event is also sponsored by DeMont Family Swim School. 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.
The Tucson event will be held on Saturday, April 20th from 8am-2:00pm at the Armory Park Center downtown and is open to anyone who works with children. Nannies, babysitters and day care center employees will greatly benefit from this rare educational opportunity. The following sessions will be offered: “Behavioral Modification Techniques” taught by Dr. Malofeeva, Licensed Psychologist, “Baby’s First Tastes” taught by Marsha Dunn Klein MEd., OTR/L from Mealtime Connections, “Perinatal Mood Disorders” taught by Caroline Malkin, Certified Postpartum Doula and more. The training event will also feature round-table discussion sessions, prize giveaways and the opportunity for child care professionals to network with one another. Each participant will also receive a certificate of completion. Registration is $29 which includes the event entry ticket and lunch by Baggins Gourmet. To register, call 520-544-6612 or email email@example.com.
