nannyreadingAnnie’s Nannies is excited to bring the Connected Centered Discipline Nanny Certification to Bellevue, WA the weekend of May 18th and 19th.  The program was created from the ground up especially for nannies. It’s built on the concepts of Positive Discipline, a popular and effective step-by-step approach that equips nannies to handle whatever discipline issues that come up with toddlers to teens. The training also teaches nannies how to skillfully navigate the nanny’s role in the family around discipline issues and behavior expectations for the child and offers an exclusive resource library of tip sheets, charts and articles to help nannies easily share the information with their employers.
