What is a Norland nanny?

A Norland Nanny is a childcare professional that has graduated from Norland College in Bath, England. The prestigious school has offered a rigorous and in-depth childcare training program for over a century. Founded in 1892 by schoolteacher Emily Ward, it was the first college to offer any kind of childcare training. In 2019 it was named the best independent higher education provider in the UK at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs).

Norland Nannies take part in cutting edge training through an academic Childhood Development degree and a skill-based diploma program combining the most up to date research and knowledge with extensive practical training, which includes Safeguarding and Child Protection, Promoting Health and Wellbeing, Making Sense of Children’s Behavior, and Working with Families and Communities. The school also prepares students for real-world work by educating them in cooking, driving, First Aid, baby massage, and more. Contact us now to start the process of hiring a Norland Nanny.

What distinguishes a Norland Nanny from a traditional nanny?

Visibly, Norland Nannies are easy to spot by their smart uniforms, which are worn at all times during schooling and training, and by request when working with families after graduation. In terms of responsibilities in the home, their on-duty tasks are typically the same as or quite similar to a traditional nanny – the value added comes from their additional skills and knowledge gained during their years at Norland. They have been trained to be flexible, imaginative, and resourceful; a Norland Nanny can put together a child’s birthday party at the last minute or come up with a creative game to distract a child during an unexpected wait at the airport. They are great at thinking on their feet and handling any situation with professionalism. Norland Nannies mix an academic understanding of children with real-world practice and thus ensure children are meeting age and stage appropriate developmental goals.

Norland nannies are trained to adhere to a strict code of professionalism and care; the code highlights safety, respect, privacy, honesty, and clear communication.

Just like traditional nannies, Norland Nannies work a variety of schedules, including live-in and live-out nanny roles, ROTA positions, travel work, and more. If you would like to learn more about other types of nannies, visit this page.
