Nanny Basics & Beyond: Virtual Conferences – Agency/Group Options

Welcome

Nanny Basics & Beyond Series Logo (1)Nanny Coaching Team knows that agencies and support groups value exceptional continuing education. We understand that it's a struggle to provide continuing education to the nannies you work with or who belong to your group. It can be expensive, time-consuming to make arrangements and often difficult to get nannies to attend. Nannies also want continuing education but have their own challenges including fitting it into their busy schedules.

Our virtual conferences make it easy for you to offer high-quality educational opportunities at a minimal investment which also allows nannies to view the videos when it works for them.  No more trying to find qualified speakers. No more reserving space and providing refreshments. No more pushing or pulling nannies to come to an event. 

Nanny Coaching Team has sought out nanny industry leaders who share their insights on specific topics that are relevant, current and focused specifically on the nanny experience. We've formatted these into video presentations that are each less than an hour, many are between 25 to 40 minutes in length. Nannies can return to these videos to review them throughout the year. 

Below you'll see the options available exclusively for Nanny Placement Agencies and Nanny Support Groups. There are options to purchase a single conference, multiple conferences or our entire conference package at discounted rates. If you choose multiple conferences you can choose which topics you'd like. Each conference has at least 5 videos included with featured industry leader speakers. That means you could choose a package, say for 4 topics, and pick from any four in the list. You are not restricted on which four you choose.
