SUGAR & SPICE
Sugar & Spice Nanny Training offers childcare courses for nannies and childminders. Our primary focus is on empowering Domestic Workers working in family homes as nannies and house keepers with all the essential knowledge` practical skills and real confidence they need to take care of children and babies from birth upwards. NANNY COURSE DETAILS: We believe that domestic workers play a valuable role in the lives of our children. We teach them to understand how significant this role is - not only are they accountable for the physical wellbeing of the child but they are also responsible for its growth` development and emotional wellbeing. We believe in open channels of regular communication between nanny and employer` with the baby\`s interests being the number one priority for all.
