A Sneak Peak Inside Nanny Basics 101

 

How does the online training work?

  • Nanny Basics 101 is kept on an online learning portal. 
  • This can be accessed from a computer, smart phone or tablet.
  • You WILL need access to data or wifi, there is no option to use the portal offline.
  • When you register you will receive your login details and password which you will use each time you need to study.
  • Although the learning portal is easy to use you will need a basic understanding of how to navigate using a mouse or mousepad.
  • The training is self paced, you need to pass all assessments and complete all modules.
  • Once you are finished we will schedule a wrap up call with you to make sure you have understood everything and have no further questions, once this is done we will send you your certificate.

"I would like to send my heart felt thank you to Gail, Mavis and the Vital LIfe Team for the knowledge and skills they have given me.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Meet Your Trainers

I bought Vital Life Training in 2005 after sending Mavis (who was my Nanny at the time) on their Child Minder Training Course. I could immediately see how much more confident Mavis was in her ability to look after my daughter and realized what an amazing opportunity training gave the ladies.  As my girls grew older Mavis transitioned into her role as trainer a role she really excels at and has mentored thousands of ladies on their journeys to becoming excellent child minders. Together we make up the team that will help and support you on your journey to becoming an amazing nanny.
