You don’t need to be reminded that continuing your education is important for your career. Not only does professional development training boost your portfolio, it also shows your NannyFamily how serious you are about your job. Although college is a great option for continuing your education, it isn’t the only way to build your knowledge and portfolio.

Cue National Nanny Training Day, an annual one-day event with locations across the country that is usually low in cost and high in education. National Nanny Training Day is hosted by agencies and fellow nannies and offers an assortment of practical childcare and professional development learning options. 2014 events will be held one week from today on Saturday, April 12. Prices range from $20-$60 depending on your area and event size. It’s convenient weekend scheduling means you can attend without missing a day of work.

Want to attend National Nanny Training Day but don’t have the cash? A great way to attend this event is to sit down with your employer and let them know about it; make sure you talk about the educational value of each event and how it will benefit their family. Chances are, they’ll be more than happy to foot the bill.
