Caring For Young Children: Early Childhood Milestones
Children grow so fast and as they do caregivers need to be ready to support them. There are so many developmental milestones and this course will teach you which ones to keep an eye out for as well as provide age appropriate activities and interactions for ages 0-4.
Our online course will go over infant, child, and adult CPR and choking with slides and video instructions. We will also go over feeding and diapering safety, as well as infant emergencies such as anaphylaxis, what to look for and how to respond. This course is solely informational.
This online training is for Nannies and Newborn Care Experts. As caregivers we have the responsibility to know about current issues that may affect our families and children. COVID-19 is still a relatively new virus.

I enjoyed both courses and learned info that I hadn’t in a previous course, so I’m appreciative that I was able to take both! I especially enjoyed the breastfeeding module.
Nanny Safety Course:
The “Nanny Safety Course” is not only a good refresher for someone who has been in this field for a while, but it sparked a renewed sense of focus and really motivated me to be intentional about the care that I give and the quality I will always strive to provide.
Sleep Coaching 101 Course:
As first time parents we were very nervous to sleep train; no one likes to hear their baby cry. This class helped us feel informed and secure in our decision. We love that the program ensures the baby never feels abandoned or alone and actively supports their independent sleep.
After implementing the program our four month old is sleeping 12 solid hours a night. This was definitely the right decision for our family, I sincerely feel like a better parent. With a full night of sleep I am more focused and engaged with my sweet baby.

Nanny Safety Training:
I found the training full useful information. I have had experience working with young children since I was 12 years old. It’s very hard to cover every single topic that can occur while watching children. The training did a very good job covering all kinds of topics. Such as bathing a baby, talking with parents, and safety issues. I thought it was a useful training to have and anyone who hasn’t been working with children long should really participate in it. Although overtime we can get comfortable and forget things, so every few years I think it’s a great idea for everyone to go over. It’s a good refresher course to remind us of the things we may have forgotten.
I found it very helpful to take some trainings before starting my position. The covid training was factual and easy to understand. All the trainings provide the nannies with resources and information on who to call for support and answers to questions moving forward.
Sleep Coaching 101 Course:
As a new mom with a now 10 week old and no baby experience I’ve turned to as many resources as possible, especially when it comes to sleeping. The BBNN sleep training course, along with the Newborn 101 book, are the resources I continue to refer back to. The online course was so easy to navigate, saved my progress, and used both PowerPoint and video which I found incredibly helpful. The content not only provided a descriptive way to sleep coach my baby when the appropriate time comes, but also great background information to help me understand the process, which has given me more patience!

Early Childhood Milestones Course
I learned new things even though I am a mother of two.
Professionalism In The Workplace
I thought it was really well presented, thorough, engaging without being overwhelming.
Nanny Safety Training and Professionalism in the Workplace
I took the training with Boston Baby Nurse and Nanny and received 2 certifications I had no idea were available to receive before knowing about BBNN. I am now certified in the knowledge of Nanny safety training and professionalism in the workplace. I can now add these to my resume and have a slightly elevated edge. The training was really fast, while still being extremely informative. I loved that it gave a variety of tools while teaching me such as PowerPoints, articles to download as well as videos to watch. I plan to use Boston Baby Nurse and Nanny for much more informative resources and certifications to continue in my career of childcare so the parents and corporations I work for can see I am qualified in my demeanor and on paper. Thank you Boston Baby Nurse and Nanny!
