The Australian Natural Nanny Network

Natural Nanny Training

A professional nanny training centre for care givers who value a Holistic approach

We train career nannies to become providers of high quality care. Our approach follows philosophies embedded in Holistic and Natural parenting and childcare.

We place a high value on raising children with deep self-awareness, since children learn from who we are BEING not what we tell them. We discuss a gentle approach to discipline and boundaries, healthy conflict resolution, and supporting children’s with big emotions in a way that instills healthy EQ.

What does natural, gentle or holistic parenting actually mean?

For example, we may carry our babies close in a sling or a wrap for the benefit of the babies’ development. Children spend more time in nature and less time on screens. They love exploring and getting muddy! We give them food that is nourishing, supports the body’s functioning and immune system, and is as natural as possible. We support and encourage them to express emotions in a healthy way. We foster a respectful approach to discipline that can we referred to as positive discipline as well as discipline through play. We focus on nurturing the whole child. These are just some of the practices and concepts our families and nannies may use in raising children.
