We all know that our current government has done little to nothing when it comes to empowering our people and reducing poverty in South Africa.

As a nanny or the employer of a nanny, you have the opportunity to take charge of your situation and make a difference in your nanny’s life.

In this article, we’ll be sharing a few great empowerment ideas you can offer your nanny.

Empower your nanny with our Nanny Training Course

Nanny Training Course Cape Town

Our nanny training course will give your nanny the confidence, skills and qualifications she needs to establish herself as a professional child carer.

This will not only put her in a better position for employment but it will also improve her salary possibilities.

First Aid courses for nannies

Additionally, a first aid training course is a great way to ensure your nanny has the skills she needs to handle an emergency. This is crucial when caring for children.

Providing your nanny with these important lifesaving skills not only enables her to look after your family, but it also puts her in the position to provide emergency assistance to her own family and her community.

Cooking classes for nannies

Our domestic cooking classes are run from the comfort of your own home and helps your nanny to understand the makings of a nutritious, home cooked meal.

Several lessons are currently on offer (all are fantastic family focused recipes):

  • Chicken Dishes
  • Chicken and pasta dishes
  • Fish Dishes
  • Beef Dishes
  • Light meals
  • Snacks
  • Desserts

Two toddler lessons are available (please note that these are natural with no synthetic ingredients):

  • Protein dishes
  • Carbohydrate and vegetable dishes

Swimming lessons for nannies

If you have a swimming pool it is vital that your nanny knows how to swim, along with your children.

Learning to swim is a great life skill to have and having it can save a life one day.

Additionally, having a nanny who can swim also allows your children to safely have fun at the pool.

Giving your nanny’s child a school education

Empowerment through education is one of the most powerful ways to make a difference in someone’s life.

By helping your nanny put her child through school, it helps to guarantee the future of both her child and her family.

Help your nanny to set up her pension

Often, nanny’s work their whole lives without saving for retirement. This becomes problematic, as the state pension is currently R1500.00 per month, and survival off that is virtually impossible.

Help you nanny to set up a pension fund. By contributing a small amount to your nanny’s pension fund, you will be giving back to someone who has devoted so much of her time to your family.

Sugar & Spice Nanny Training Cape Town

By empowering your nanny through skill development and training, you can improve her employment potential, while improving her possible salary earnings.

A few comments from some of our nanny training attendees

Talent Ndlovu

“My name is Talent Ndlovu, I wanted to thank Kim from Sugar and Spice Nanny Training. It is because of Kim’s hard work and the nanny training course that I am employed today.

Last year, I did the nanny course, I was not working at the time, but the course really helped me to find work. I got a job soon after I finished the training course.

Some of the highlights of the course:

  • How to prepare food for kids,
  • Hygiene and health,
  • Keeping a weekly routine.

Not to forget the great cup of coffee and biscuits during break time. I also enjoyed Kim’s teaching, she is a very blessed person and teaches with great passion.

Sugar and Spice Nanny Training is the right place for all ladies who want their tomorrow to be as joyful as mine.

Don’t look anywhere else, the Sugar and Spice team make you feel at home and you will enjoy the course with Kim.

Thank you, Kim, and keep up the good training!”

Anna Zvidzai

“Sugar and Spice Nanny Training is a place where I learnt that being a nanny is not only about keeping a child alive.

The course opened my mind to a whole new way of looking after a child.

As a nanny, I have learnt that I need to develop not only their physical aspects of a child but also their learning skills, how to express and deal with their feelings, teaching them what is right and wrong, and to respect others and how to share.

Furthermore, I learnt about safety in and around the house, time management, nutrition (giving kids a balanced diet) and child CPR – in case of an emergency.

I can proudly say that after all I learnt at the Sugar and Spice Nanny Training Course, I am a better, more efficient nanny.

Thank you, Kim, and the Sugar and Spice team. You guys are the best!”
