Newborn Care Specialist Training

Set yourself apart from other Nannies and Childcare providers by becoming a Certified Newborn Care Specialist (NCS)

A Newborn Care Specialist is someone who specializes in newborn care. Newborn Care Specialists assist parents in their home the first few weeks or months of baby's life with parent education, feeding/breastfeeding, basic baby care, and light baby-related housekeeping. It is important to note that a Newborn Care Specialist is not a Nanny and not a Doula and requires special training and education specific to the profession.  The NCS program will cover a wide range of topics including Bathing, Sleep Practices, Feeding, Swaddling, Siblings developmental milestones and so much more.  You will also learn about client relations, what your role is as a Newborn Care Specialist, what it takes to be a team player and how to get a job.

If you already have newborn care experience or are an experienced nanny this program offers you an opportunity to learn what it takes ot become a Certified Newborn Care Specialist.  Job opportunites for Child Care workers are growing very fast in our area and this is a great opportunity to expand your services and marketability.  If you love the childcare field and infants in particular this may be just the thing for you.
